Shabby Silhouette

Hello Blog friends - It is Sunday night for me - the weekends just seem to fly by - I am sure you find the same. I hope yours has been a relaxing one and you were able to have a little 'you time!'  For me that means time in The Studio - my happy place, well, one of them!

One thing I try to do regularly is create cards from those bits and pieces that gather on my desk like wildfire - now that I have a longer desk I could be in real trouble of I do not do this regularly! LOL!

I have used a silhouette image that was sent to me in a RAK years ago ( I know! I know! I should have used it long ago!!)  The gorgeous frame is cut using a discontinued Die from Spellbinders and has been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  This has been layered onto the A2 Valiant Honor  Nestabilities® Card Creator.  The sentiment is from Sentiments 3.  All Dies have been cut/embossed using the Grand Calibur Die Cutting and Embossing Machine 

The wooden butterfly embellishment is from Prima and the bling by Want2Scrap.  The gorgeous patterned paper is from Authentique Paper and is one of my favourites.

This card is for the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge - One for the Girls

Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything goes

Simply Create Too Challenge - Anything Goes
