Silhouette fun at Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Good morning!  Happy Thursday... Yay!  We are past the mid-week mark!

It's time for a new fortnightly challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and we have a good one this week!   You may remember that last week we had some lovely new releases to show you?  Did you notice they included Silhouettes?  Well this week our challenge to you is to create a project using a Silhouette for the main image.

Head over to the challenge blog to check out what the design team have done and while you are there pick up the free bunny silhouette Barbara is giving away until March 31st!  I love how everyone has their own unique style.  It really shows when there are no images to colour up.

Here's my take on the challenge using Monster Winds as a silhouette:


















































I based this card on an old sketch from The Sweet Stop... I was so inspired by DT member Wendy's card, that I wanted to try this layout with bright colours.

The papers I have used are a mixture from Cosmo Cricket, Pink Paisley and Crate Paper.  The sentiment is an SRM sticker.  The brad is from My Mind's Eye and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  It's rather hard to see in the photo, but I distressed around the black matting with my Ranger Distressing  thingy and added Distress Inks around the edge of the silhouette circle.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Freshly Brewed challenges: Dots
The Perfect Sentiment: Thank you plus distressing
Whimsy Stamps: Anything Goes

We hope you can join us this fortnight!
