Silhouette Card

April's challenge at Paper Crafts Connection was all about Silhouettes.  If you click on the link... you'll see the winning cards... absolutely awesome.... but I am still happy with my card

Silhoutte Birthday


I used a diecut from Theresa Collins that came with a magazine.  The background  was stamped in Versamark on Kraft card.  ~Lace background from Hero Arts.  Some scrap PP, some mirror card and a silk ribbon.  Flowers were all hand made from computer paper inked with some distress ink.  Sentiment from Hastings Rubber Stamps. 

I have ordered some Cherry Lynn dies to make these flowers easier to create.



Can't wait till they arrive.  I've ordered the miniature, the medium and the large.  There is a wonderful video here that shows how to put them together.

So glad the weekend is here as I am feeling rather tired... and looking forward to a sleep in.  I've got two commission cards to make and one for my DT work so a busy weekend.

Thanks to you all, for all your lovely comments.  I really do appreciate that you take the time to make a comment.
