better get better

** 3/6/16 Top 5 at 613 Avenue Create! **

Hey everybody! Can you believe it's already the 1st of March?! OMG, so much going on! I'm so happy to share my House of Cards DT inspiration project for our March Word Cue Challenge: Silhouette! Come play with us and show us what the word 'Silhouette' means to you! :)


I chose a gorgeous Stampin' Up! silhouette background stamp to work with for this challenge. Using a black and white color palette, this card is pretty clean and simple for me. I embossed the front sentiment in white on black cardstock, and the only embellishment I used was Liquid Pearls in the centers of the flowers. I really like how this turned out. Sometimes less really IS more! :)


I kept the inside simple as well, which I normally do anyway, with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel. The front and inside sentiments on this project are also from Stampin' Up!


Proud to enter this card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Premium White cardstock, Marco's Black cardstock
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up! Wildflower Meadow (#129168), Stampin' Up! A Dozen Thoughts  (#131059)
  • Ink: Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Accessories: Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, White Liquid Pearls

I sure hope you're inspired to play with us in our Word Cue Challenge this month - I can't wait to see your 'Silhouette' project! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!
Scrappy hugs,
Leslie
