Oriental Silhouette

Good morning my friends and Happy Sunday.   Before I get to my card, I have some news.  I have been invited to join the Design Team for Gingerloft Stamps.  I'm really excited to work with this fabulous group of ladies.  I've only recently found them and Tami's images, but look forward to working with her and working with her fabulous images.  So here is my card.

The theme for our challenge is to use a silhouette for your image.  I chose this pretty Asian girl and I think I had just the paper to go with it.
Materials Used:
  •  Image - Gingerloft Stamps
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Pursuit of Happiness - stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black and Pale Plum ink sponged over it.
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Pale Plum and Whisper White
  • Designer Paper - Basic Gray - Kioshi
  • Nestibilities - Label
  • Ribbon - Michaels
  • Flower - Wild Orchid Crafts - Mushroom/Cream 25mm Rose
  Check out what the rest of the Design Team has for you this time.  Links to their blogs are over on the left side of the blog.  One lucky participant of the challenge will win 3 digi stamps of their choice from the Gingerloft Stamp Store.  A link to the store is posted on the right side of my blog.  Have fun and I can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your comments.  I do appreciate each one.

      Since this is my first time with Gingerloft being a new DT member, I had to go check it out, but I see that other people have entered more than 1 card in a challenge, so I guess it's okay!
