STV's Friday Potluck Challenge

Is "to use a SENTIMENT for your background!! NO dp allowed except what you make on your own with sentiments!!! "....so...OK! 
I was still determined to conquer the "clear cardstock thing"...so purchased something called "clear film" from LSS (which is actually, I think, acetate or so close its acetate's twin!)...anyway, it is much thinner - no irritating film to peel back, isn't anywhere near as thick as clear cardstock - still slippery...but I was very very careful!....here is my card






i just reversed the challenge and stamped my sentiment all over the clear and placed it over my stamped images...really like it IRL.was hard to get a pic without the flash reflecting off the clear film, so I lifted the film a little from the card - sorry :(...the images aren't  really blurry

Stamps: GinaK's "Thanks a Million" and "Signs of Autumn", Rubber Stamp Tapestry's coffee peg stamp
Paper: GinakK's black, pumpkin, ivory
Ink: Stazon black on clear film, SU's pumpkin, ruby, and rust on ivory
Embellishment: Jute ribbon/twine from GinaK
Technique: overlay, matting

Whew! I believe I have "conquered" the case of the clear cardstock, LOL ! thank you everyone for all your suggestions and encouragement with this ..hugs to all!!!

Awesome card, Linda! I love coffee cards, which is funny seeing I'm not a coffee drinker.
