BC282: Silhouettes


Today over at Blogger's Challenge we were challenged to use some silhouettes this week.  I have to say this was definitely a challenge for me as I only have like 2 sets that have these type of images in them.  Or maybe I have more and just don't realize it as I never use them.

My first card is not a traditional silhouette, but I went with it anyway :-)  I pulled the current colors from the Paper Player's Challenge this week along with the Retro Sketches



 I love the colors and sketch so much, I created 2 cards that are similar but a little different.  I went and used my heart silhouette's from the Love2Hug set from The {Stamps} of Life.  I love this set from Vintage Notes from Gina K. and I thought the words from Sentimental Birds set from Sweet Stamp Shop would work well.


For my next card I tried the silhouette with a similar layout:


I decided not to add a sentiment on this one on the outside, but I did put a simple one on the inside.

Hope it's cooling off where you are and that we'll see your silhouette's over at Blogger's Challenge.

These two cards are just awesome, hard to pick a favorite. I love that the second doesn't have a sentiment though!
