365 Cards - #119 Seeing A Silhouette

Over on 365 Cards today the challenge was to create a silhouette of your image and it might require some fussy cutting or colouring of your image. I wasn't going to do this one today as I did not have an image that I was happy to do in a silhouette image. I sat looking at other entries and decided to give it a go Pam was not going to beat me lol. The only image I was happy to do for this challenge was the bird on a branch from SU - Friends 24-7. I also adore the damask stamp from this set and use it a lot on other projects especially when doing journals. On this card I chose to stamp it in black on the Pink Pirouette cardstock and I love how it turned out. So here is my card for today. . .

That is all I am capable of producing tonight as this flu will not leave and I am sick of feeling woozy and headachy and sniffley but ya know what makes a girl feel better . . .yes sir, creating a card!!
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: SU Pink Pirouette, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock. SU Friends 24-7 stamp set. Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF. Kaisercraft rhinestones. American Crafts ribbon. SU Basic Black and Pink Pirouette stamp pads.

A gin and tonic might help a little. However it looks as though making your card helped a lot too. It's just great!!
Get well soon!

Michelle, great card and I don't think that Pam will go after you at all. Now when she sees my card she might. Maybe I should have made it a black dinosaur?

Great card! Hoe DO you tie the bow so perfectly? I wish i could buy them already done:) I love the pink and black background you did too. I hope you are feeling better-have you ever tried peppermint tea-really helps.
