I created this card for a Way to Use it challenge. Kim challenged us to use Silhouette stamps. The layout is from a CPS sketch.

I stamped the birds from Unity’s Brave Girls on a 1 7/8″ x 4 3/8″ piece of Classic Cream Cardstock with Midnight Black Brilliance ink. The image was layered on a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, that had been cut and embossed with Long Rectangle Scallop Nestabilities. The edges of the layer were paper pierced.

A 2″ x 4″ strip of Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Paper was stitched  to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the same paper pack. May Arts Gingham ribbon was tied around the vertical strip before the layers were adhered to a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card base out of Canyon Brown cardstock.

A half circle of Early Bird paper was adhered under the lower right of the image layers before those were adhered to the card with dimensionals. Pewter Kaisercraft Pearls were adhered to the half circle.

The sentiment is also from the Brave Girl set. It was stamped on a piece of Cream cardstock, cut and embossed with one of the Labels Trio set from Spellbinders. A Pewter Kaisercraft pearl on each side of the label finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
