A Special Silhouette

Today's card was made for the Ways to Use It challenge over on Split Coast - to use a silhouette stamp on your card.I used this pretty blossom from Artful Inkables Silhouette Blossoms set - stamping it with 3 inks - River Rock, Pretty in Pink and Berry Sorbet.I cuttled the designer paper using the Leafy Branch folder but I don't think you can see it in the picture. It gives it a little dimension IRL.

I also cuttled the strip of River Rock with the Swiss Dots folder. The sentiment is from the Mail Box Greetings set from PapertreyInk. I love the two different fonts on it. Inside I stamped a Happy Birthday verse. The flower panel and the sentiment oval are up on foam dimensionals.

I love the look of silhouette stamps. You usually think of silhouettes being in black but you can see how lovely they look when you use colors too!

Thanks so much for coming by today!
