Hi there!  Just popping in to share a card I made for a recent Paper Crafts call that wasn't picked up.  The category was silhouettes for brides and babies, which led me to create this little number perfect for an engagement.

To make this card, I stitched a piece of Vintage Cream cardstock debossed with PTI's music score impression plate onto a Cream card base. 

For the focal point, I die cut and stamped the large frame from Waltzingmouse's Vintage Labels 18 and punched out the center circle.  The silhouette from PTI's Iconic images was stamped onto another piece of Vintage Cream cardstock, debossed with the Linen & Canvas impression plate, and adhered behind the frame, which is popped up on foam dots.

You can't see it in the photo, but the frame was sprayed with Perfect Pearls mist to give it a nice shimmer.  For the finishing touches, I added a crown of pearls to the silhouette and a tiny tag tied with wrinkled ribbon.

I hope you'll come by tomorrow, as I have two posts lined up, including the newest ColourQ challenge.  Thanks for visiting!
