Garden Silhouettes

Hi everyone! This was supposed to be a quick and easy clean and simple card but I got a little carried away and kept adding layers and embellishments! I'm really challenged and never know what to do with shadow images or images that don't require coloring. The image used on today's card is from the Garden Silhouettes rubber stamp set by Stampin' Up.

I just realized that I didn't use any patterned paper on this card. I've also been reaching for my kraft cardstock a lot more lately too. The card base is finished with Rose Red embossed using the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. Over it I added some kraft cardstock then stitched around the edges. To embellish the card I added some white lace and organdy ribbon as well as two black buttons threaded with DMC White. The sentiment was printed off my PC and the ends finished using a small square punch.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
