Silhoutte challenge at CASology

Over at CASology this week, the cue word is SILHOUETTE.  I had pinned a card recently that had a cat silhouette and it gave me an idea.  I have one cat stamp that is almost a silhouette.  I thought it might just work.

CAS-ology #61 Silhouette

I stamped the cat with Archival Black ink and then added a strip of scalloped punched card and some faux stitching.  The silhouette leaves are by Sizzix.  I finished with a sentiment from Hero Arts.   A very CAS card and hopefully the car is a good enough silhouette.  

Hubby arrived home from Singapore feeling very tired so got send to bed at mid-day to have a nap.  He does not sleep well on long haul flights and this one was an overnighter.  He did get a couple of hours which was good as we had to go out to a 60th birthday.  The one I made my exploding box for.

Sheryl really loved it and was very surprised as she didn't know that I had got the photos from her hubby.
