Simply Create Challenge 47 - Silhouettes

Welcome to another Simply Create challenge! This fortnight the challenge is:


I've made two cards with some freebies downloaded from Papercraft Inspirations. I've simply printed the images onto pale cream cardstock, rounded the edges and then layered them onto either silver or gold pearlescent paper then onto the card blank.

I've tied a big ribbon to the gold card and then with the silver card I've created some loops as the ribbon wasn't quite long enough! A pearlescent bead heart covers the glue area!

For a bit of decoration I've added some tiny flat backed pearls randomly over the little flowers on the image.

Really nice and quick to make! Good luck with the challenge - for more details and inspiration from the rest of the Design Team pop over to the challenge blog!

These cards fit the following challenges:
