Pocket Silhouettes

This is the sweetest little SU set and can be used in so many ways. The inspiration for this card came from a little card tote on SCS Inklings. The same colours were used - it was so pretty. The Night of Navy strip has been embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and Crystal Effects has been added to the flowers in the circle.

Just as was done on the SCS card, I used the eyelet border punch for the corners - what a great idea! Anyone who knows me just knows how much I love punches and hardly a card goes by without my using at least one punch. I have used three just in this simple little card!

Colours used were Night of Navy, Brocade Blue and Whisper White. I inked the wording with Brocade Blue and then went over the Y with a Night of Navy marker before stamping.

This is so sweet. I saw that tote on SCS and I agree, this is a great a versatile set. I have several of the Martha Stewart Border punches, but I really like this one too, seeing it on your card. Oh, where to store another punch?!...Anyway, you did a lovely job on this card.
