Simply Silhouetted!

Hi everyone, this card is for Andrea's Stampin' Moments Simply Saturday challenge - Simply Silhouetted. I really love silhouette stamps, you don't really have to do a lot to them, just stamp it on a nice background, add a little bling and there you go!

My stamp is by Hero Arts, the greeting is from Stamp-It. I just stamped the flowers onto some patterned paper.......I have no idea who the maker is as I only have a few scraps left, wish I had some more really! I added a colour lift with some red gingham ribbon. Not sure if this is a true CAS card as it has a few layers, but it was pretty easy to make. Hope you like it!


Just on a personal note, it is an anniversary of sorts today for me. Not one that you'd want though, it's one year today since I was diagnosed with cancer. It hasn't been a great year, but, the good thing is that I'm still here to talk about it.........and I'm not planning to go anytime soon either!

Congratulations on making it through this difficult year. Takes a lot of courage to fight that fight and come out of it with such a positive attitude. I admire your outlook.

Congratulations, Lyn, on your anniversary. You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers everyday. I especially love this card. Often the beauty of our cards are in their simplicity-something I occasionally forget! Keep up all the good work. My very best, Janis Rothermel
