Won't I be organised for Christmas??

Yes, of course I will, thanks to the gang at Bah Humbug keeping me on my toes. Their challenge this week is Silhouettes and after I'd been through all my stamps and not found a single silhouette stamp I decided to have a bash at making my own using this little girl stamp from Joanna Sheen (I totally forgot I had the Dancing with Shadows CD, doh!!)

I've made an 8x8 shaker card based on this weeks sketch from Sketch Saturday. I stamped the little girl onto pearlescent card and coloured her with dark grey promarkers and blender pen. I used black tapestry card with its lovely texture and detail, cut an oval on my cricut attached some acetate. I added some white lace and clear gems to another strip of tapestry card and mounted it with foam pads. I stamped the text (from Elusive Images) onto white pearl card, added some sparkly white stuff (from the scrap store) and mounted the black layer with shaker tape.To finish off I glittered some white snowflakes cut on the trusty cricut with Glenda's Glitter in Snowflake and added some more lace and a black bow to the bottom
I'm also entering this card into the latest challenge from Our Creative Corner which is to make a B&W card with focal text and lots of texture

Thanks for looking
