A CCEE Silhouette challenge

Wow, it's Thursday already. That means it's time for another CCEE Stamper's challenge. This week, Joanne challenged us to us a silhouette as a focal image. I chose the flowers from one of last month's released Verve sets called Love's Flower, and the sentiment is from a recent Verve release called Feel the Sun. The yummy dp is Venice by 7 Gypsies, the gorgeous Crocheted Flower is by Prima, and the wonderfully fun Rhinestone Flourishes are by Zva Creative. I also added some Kaisercraft Pearl accents, some Martha Stewart Ribbon, and a couple of EK Success border punched edges. All the edges were ink distressed with my new fave Ranger Distress Ink, Pumice Stone. It has a smokey look to it. It's hard to explain, but it works with both grays and browns. Talk about versatile!!

Oh, I almost forgot the fantastic frames. I'm a Spellbinder~a~holic. Seriously, every single project of mine includes one of their shapes. This time I used two of their newest ones: Labels 11 and Labels 13.

Here's a view of the card at a different angle. The rhinestones show better here.
I also added some gold Spica Pen ink to the berries on the wildflower image.


Now, we'd love to have you join us in this challenge. All you have to do is go to our CCEE Stamper's blog and link your card with Mr. Linky. I can't wait to see you come up with.

Happy Stamping!
Tosh
