Silhoutte

Good evening folks.
Well the man from BT has been finally been and done his stuff after over a week of intermittent internet, crackly phone line then no phone at all for the last 4 days. 
So hopefully we now have a phone line as well as an internet connection! Apparently it was a faulty connection at the top of a pole 500m away. Glad it wasn't me up the pole in this weather but the guy said it was OK as he was strapped to it!!!

Anyway I can finally indulge in some not for DT purposes posting.


I made this with a couple of challenges in mind.
Over at Less is More, the challenge is to use a silhouette on your card.
I have a few stamps that fit the remit but settled on a combination of Stampin Up and Indigo Blue for this card. I stamped the seed heads on a panel of smooshed card that I made a while ago when playing. I think it was a mixture of blue and platinum as looks like a third or fourth smooch as it is quite pale. It has a gorgeous shimmer and the light blue smooching just reminded me of the sky.
I mounted the panel on a linen effect base card and the added a white embossed sentiment on black.

I'd like to join in over at -


Took my inspiration from the layout, silhouetted butterfly, thanks and smooshed background.
