A Silhouette Thankyou

Hello, it's Bridget here today with a very quick and simple sponging and silhouette card for you - I love the look of a black silhouette against a bright splash of color.  And in the middle of making Christmas cards, I had the urge to make something fresh and flowery!
I sponged the card base using SU's Certainly Celery and Old Olive, then used a Fiskar's punch to round the corners.  Sweet and Sassy Stamps Wildflowers set works wonderfully to stamp multiple times at different heights across the bottom of a card, whatever the width.  The sentiments are beautiful and I like to use them for thank you cards especially - I added a small row of black pearls as an accent.
The gems in the flower centers are colored with Copic Y95 to match the green. To finish I added some black and white gingham ribbon to pick up on the black of the silhouette.
Hope it's a good Monday for you!
Hugs, Bridget

What a quick and easy, but beautiful card, Bridget! I'll have to remember this technique when I need a "praying for you" card in a hurry!
