DT card, first attempt

This is my first attempt at a Pop-up card. So be gentle. This most certainly is not perfect. I have still not perfected the whole method. So I will be practicing till I get it right! This is from the new Summer and Sea collection.
Images were all stamped on Fabriano Artistico 140lbs Bright white, hot press watercolor paper. They are colored with Caran D'ache Supracolor pencils, Distress ink's and Twinkling H2O's. Card stock and DP is all from Magnolia's shop. Acetate was used to hold pieces in place. Background panel was hand drawn and a corner of Magnolia Cattails was added. Clouds and sun(High Hopes sun) were popped up with 3-D dots. I am back to the drawing board to improve my design.
Hugs,
Sophie

Ok, I added a cattail here in order to hide the acetate better. The problem was that I inserted it to high in the Background.
