Happy Friday Everyone!! I can't believe it is Friday already!! Wow!!  Time really does go so fast.  Still can't believe it is almost Thanksgiving already!

Today I have a Wags n Whiskers challenge to share with you.  This week's challenge is hosted by the sweet and talented Tracy. Tracy's challenge is to create something using vellum or acetate.
Don't forget this challenge is now open. Anyone can play along and you DO NOT need to use a Wags 'n Whiskers image.

Each challenge there are two prizes:

One random participant will win a

Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber stamp of their choice.
Any entry using a Wags 'n Whiskers image on their card will be entered into a drawing for a W'nW Digital stamp of their choice!!

Therefore, anyone who uses a Wags 'n Whiskers image will be entered into both prizes of a rubber stamp and a digital stamp!!

The only requirements are that you link directly to your challenge project - not to the main page of your blog. You must have a new project (no back linking) and you must link your card to the challenge post here.

Here is my take on the challenge using  acetate.

I used the adorable He loves Me image (one of my fave images!)  The acetate I purchased had ivory lace printed on it and it just looked so elegant.  I colored my image with copics and cut it out with a Lacey circles nestabilities set. The second circle is a scalloped circle die from Spellbinders with I outlined with pearls.  The ribbon is blue silk from May Arts.
