Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight on ... Silhouettes

That's right. This week, we want to see your silhouettes. And we're sponsored by Stitchy Stamps who has some fabulous silhouettes among her fabulous creations.

I've used one of Stitchy's silhouettes - she comes from a set called 'A Touch of Class'.
I printed the silhouette, some leaves and the frame onto film. The background includes some files from Crafty Image Emporium CD, and some PSE generated trees and shadows and is printed on paper. I've layered them with foam pads to get some depth. The backing paper is from the same CD, but I've changed the colour to give the yellow background. The flowers were cut with Marianne Creatables dies and the ferns were punched.

And some news about the Spotlight Challenges! They'll be moving to their very own blog as of next month. That's right, Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Challenges has a new home, all of its own! Challenges on both the main and the Spotlight blogs will continue to run for a fortnight, starting on alternate Mondays. So, bookmark or follow the new blog so you don't miss the exciting new spotlights we've got in store for you!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Incy Wincy where they want punches or dies (fern punches and flower dies)

This is just superb. I love the whole look of it and those fern punchies at the front match the leaves you have printed so well. It has a softly oriental feel to it.

I need that punch!
