"Cameo/Silhouette" New Challenge at SOUS!

 Hi everyone and Woo Hoo it's Friday! Well it's another challenge day over at Stuck On U Sketch's Die Cut Challenge and the challenge is to use a "Cameo/Silhouette" for your project. Well I used the Forever Young cartridge and my Cricut because I just LOVE the Silhouettes on it. They are so Fun and knew I wanted to make two different cards using the negative space from one of them. I also wanted it to be kind of Vintage so I used this pretty paper from K & Company. Well I cut my Silhouette's @ 4" and cut two because, you know me gotta have some dimension! Then with the negative space of the silhouette I did my Fun Packing Tape Technique and added some pretty pink Martha Stewart Glitter for a whole new look to my silhouette! Added them to the frame and of course had to pop those layers too. Now to accent my silhouettes I had to dress them up a bit with a couple of pearl necklaces and they are both have some pretty gemstones dangling there. Then one has a bow in her hair and one has a flower, So Elegant and Pretty!  
 Here is a view of the purple card and all the details close up. Added some pretty recollections flowers to cascade at the top along with my much loved Bling. Added a few fancy photo corners with some more added bling. I also used a Martha Stewart punch and added a pretty sheer ribbon along with some more bling. And the "Seriously?" is cut @ 1" with the shadow and of course popped for some added dimension.  
 Here is the Pink card close up with some Pearl Bling added to this one and a Crepe Paper flower that I had made (you know me and my handmade flowers, Love them!) "Seriously?" is also cut @1" on this also and popped and then to the inside of the cards the sayings.................................
 Are from Stephanie's new stamps at Whimsical Designs and you can purchase them HERE. I used my Nesties from Spellbinders for my scalloped ovals for the inside. (Yay, I finished the inside, lol)!
 Here is another view to the purple card and you can see the Martha Stewart Punch a little bit better on this one and the popped dimension too.
 And here is another view of the pink one so you can see the sparkle a bit better.
 Another close up of the Pink Glitter Silhouette and can you see I also added a little pearl earring!
And also a close up of the purple one and the popped silhouette and those fun flowers.

Well I sure hope you join us for the Cameo/Silhouette challenge over at SOUS Die Cut Challenge! The challenge is open for two weeks and all we ask is that you use some Die Cut Machine. It doesn't have to be the Cricut (that is the one that I have) any Die Cut Machine will do (and there are many out there now) it has to be a NEW creation (no back linking) and please we would love that you add our link in your post so some of your friends and followers might want to join us. You know the more the merrier I always say, LOL! Now if you stopped by here first make sure you check out the Design Team Gals over at the Stuck On U Sketches Blog, they are ALWAYS Amazing with what they come up with so make sure to check them out! I hope you have a Great weekend and get to get some crafting done and hope to see you over at SOUS! Thanks for stopping by!

((Hugs)) and Take Care,

Kid Rock...he's the BEST worst singer out there! LOL! Seriously! LOL!
I LOVE this song...ok...and if I could only pull myself
together I could comment on your card...hummmm.


So...I do love the projects but having the word Seriously
on them seemed to take them to the next level of fun!
I adore these and love that you made 2! These are fabulous! (like you!)
