Silhouettes and Dresser Draws

Well it is definitely 2012, and it seems time is flying faster this year than last! Another week has gone by and so I have another inspirational picture from Paper Lovin' Gals for you.  

I love this old dresser, doesn't it have great character?  I was initially going to get very crafty and actually try and re-create a set of draws but I didn't quite have the time to do that, so I decided to utalise the draws on the dresser for inspiration.  Then I saw the challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog which is to use a black silhouette image, and I knew which stamp I would use.

I recently used this stamp from Just Believe on another card and have decided I love it in silhouette, this time instead of little butterflies, I added some pearls to the centre of the flowers to give it some lift.  The little black brads are similar to the knobs on the draws and I like what they add to the card.  I also wanted to pick up some of the blue from the wall behind the dresser and so used Night of Navy ribbon and stamped the sentiment from Elements of style in it also.

I hope you have enjoyed my creation make sure you pop over to Paper Lovin' Gals and check out the creations the Design Team have come up with.  As usual you can use anything in the picture to inspire your creation, so let your creativity run wild and join us.

Happy Stamping
