Boxwood silhouette

This was my contribution to the DT for Sasya Sketches sketch no.8. You have until May 4 to upload your project using the sketch. A random winner will be drawn and also 2 guest designers will be chosen for the next week's sketch! How fun is that? *smile*

See the spring moss panel on the left side of my card? I've had that scrap of paper in my "stamped" scrap pile since February of 2009 when I made THIS card. So glad I finally used it! The stamp is from the 2007 PTI anniversary set. The main image panel stamps are from Cornish Heritage Farms Kim Hughes collection called Nature Silhouettes. I also used a Text Style stamp from PTI but stamped it with the Chamomile ink from the tea dye duo to soften it up.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a good one!

Oh, I almost forgot! *slaps hand to forehead* To see the first samples made with Practicing Creativity Designs newest release, head over to Courtney's blog! She's showcasing some really fun cards today you don't want to miss!
