Addicted to Stamps and More #275

Challenge #275 at Addicted to Stamps and More is a photo challenge.  We're asking you to make a card inspired by this photo.  

There are a variety of elements in the photo that would make a wonderful card.  Here's what inspired me.
I loved the pictures on the wall with the black and white stripe but I wanted to do something a little different.  I had this black striped acetate that I cut to A2 card size.  Then I had to figure out how to put the card together so I could adhere the acetate and also have some hanging off the edge.  My solution was to fold a portion of my card panel over the acetate, glue it down with Scor-tape and use it for my sentiment from CF.  I cut off the other edge of the panel the same width.  The measurement in between is what I used for the actual card portion and adhered the panel to it.  The MFT tree was cut from gold foil polka dot paper. 

This is something different than I've ever done before and I enjoyed the creativity of it.  We'd love to see you get creative and make a card for the challenge.  How about it?
