Silhouette stamp

I got this silhouette digistamp from Stitchy Bear Stamps and I printed it this evening. I wanted to make a card for Sir Stampalot's May challenge and I made my own backing paper to be able to enter Cute Card Thursday and Crafty Creations. Papertake Weekly had a lovely sketch that I decided to follow, something in the connection between brain and hand failed though... but as they say; scrap happens =) Well, well, it works for Flutterby Wednesday though =)

Morning Helene

This really is very special, so unusual how you have laid it all out, but I really like it.

I am also a big fsan of silhouette stamps, there is so much you can do with them and they give great impact.
