Just Us Girls #419 - Trend Week

Dear Ones~
This time it's TREND WEEK over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Lisa has picked SILHOUETTE STAMPING. I love that look. Always elegant.

Here's my card:
I decided to do something other than a black silhouette for this card, so I pulled out my Stampin' Up Island Indigo ink (one of my favorites) and an old GKD stamp set called Whimsical Wishes. I think I won this set back in the day when we could chose our own stamp set if we won a challenge. I have always loved these images and thought they were perfect for the silhouette look. I cut the gold circle frames from 2 different circle dies. I think they really add a lot to the card. And I added some gold thread behind the greeting just for a touch of class.

Here are the Ingredients:
SU Island Indigo Card Stock
Recollections White 110# Card Stock
Stash Gold Metallic Card Stock
SU Blooms and Bliss DSP
GKD Whimsical Wishes Stamp Set
GKD Stamper's Favorites Stamp for Greeting
SU Layering Circles Thinlits
SU Flourish Thinlits
GKD Gold Embossing Powder
Stash Gold Thread.
