Ooh La La Challenge #99

Hi all I am afraid I have had to schedule this post as I am not feeling very well at this time.  I am trying to keep up with my DT commenting but it may be a few days before I can get to see you all so please bear with me.

Well today we have a new challenge for you at
We have an Inspirational Photo for you which is below.

Here is my DT card using paper and image from the new CD Shoes In Bloom 2.  I decided to make an acetate card just for a change, I have some 12"x12" sheets of acetate and cut one sheet down to make this 6"x6" card.  I mounted the paper onto some yellow card and adhered it on the inside of the card, I added some ribbon and sentiment also on the inside.  I actually adhered the image on the outside of the card, I mounted it onto the same card as the paper then used some line glittered peel offs around the image, I added a bow and some gems also some pearls to the image.  Making the card this way gives an illusion that the paper, image and sentiment are on the outside. 
The below picture shows the card open.

Behind the image there is a blank card for writing a message.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I will be linking to these challenges a little later in the day.
Thank you for visiting and I really do treasure your wonderful comments.
It would be great if you could come join our challenge which runs for 2 weeks.
Hugs to all.
