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.

  3. So pretty! Love your softly smooshed background Jules. And the mix of silhouette images is to beautiful. xx

  4. Love those seed heads against the light sky - the smooshing gives it real movement! Glad you are back online :) Congrats too for the showcase of your lovely LIM butterfly card!

  5. Such a pretty scene, Julie. The light hues of the smooshing are the perfect background for your lovely silhouettes.
