Transparent Friends

I've wanted to make a transparent card for ages (again, I'd seen them on other blogs but was too intimidated to try). How exciting to have the fixings for one in a card kit. I really like how it turned out and feel confident to try more. The only thing I don't like is that my tape adhesive shows through on the back. I know it's futzy, but I like to try and keep things clean. I'll have to try different adhesives and see what I can figure out.
