Beautifully Framed Silhouette

Hello friends,  it is Sunday night here and the weekend is fast disappearing, I hope you have had a good one - or are still enjoying one,  I have found time in The Studio - which is always a good thing - for me anyway,

My card today has been created using a retired Silhouette image that has been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Bamboo Leaves and layered onto yellow card stock.  The layers have been popped up onto patterned paper that has been embossed using Spellbinders Em-bossing Fold'ers Grid 4.25 x 5.5 in Single Sided and popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

The ornate frame at the top has been cut/embossed using Spellbinders Nestabilities Art Nouveau Water Lilies Decorative Accent Stacey Caron Etched Dies and popped around the layered image.  The flower is from the Shapeabilities Heart & Home Flower Play Etched Dies and the leaves from the Shapeabilities Amazing Paper Grace Stack and Fan Flowers Etched Dies. The flower and leaves have been adhered to the lower portion of the layered image and lave added across the lower portion of the card,  I have finished off using adding Want2Scrap Swirls Finesse - LeCreme either side of the flowers.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
