This weeks challenge at Bah Humbug is silhouettes so I was thinking of using an image from Joanna Sheen's Dancing with Shadows CD but my friend Anne beat me to it!!! So I had to get my thinking cap on. Did a bit of a trawl on the internet but didn't come up with anything I liked so went through my Christmas stamp box and found a Creative Expressions set which has silhouette images on it.

I have used a square white base card and covered it with a black and silver backing paper from my stash, added a piece of vellum across the centre which was punched using my Fiskars border punch. I added a ribbon across the vellum. The robin image was stamped in black and clear embossed, as was the Merry Christmas sentiment around it. They were both cut out using Nesties circles dies and then mounted onto black mirri card cut using a Nellies die. I had a flourish die and cut two from black mirri but they were too big for the corners so I cut off the "swirls" which I then used at the bottom left and top right of the vellum. The addition of some gems finished the card off.

Thanks for looking.
