Christmas Silhouette

I've been in love with silhouettes since I was a little girl in third grade and read a seriesof biographies that were illustrated with silhouettes.  The City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #91 theme is "Back to Black" silhouettes. I've looked at this paper sitting out for several days and kept thinking Christmas, so Santa's silhouette seemed natural since I was using red, black and white as my colors. It's different from the usual Christmas card, so I hope you're not sick of seeing something about Christmas. It reminded me of sunset among icy trees. It also seemed complete without adding more.


6" x 6" Card:
Paper - Basic Grey "Indian Summer," CTMH White Daisy and Black CS
Stamps - CTMH "I Believe," "Charm Upper Case Alphabet"
Ink - Memento Black Tuxedo
Accessories, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 1/8" circle punch, CTMH black button brads

OOOF! I admire art talent like yours...take paper like this and turn it into a stunning Christmas card. I have that BG paper, and it would never occur to me to make a Christmas card from it. Now I will think of YOUR card when I play with Indian Summer again. Thanks for the inspiration, Vickie. I *love* this card!!!
