Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #6

Good afternoon, well today my husband and I are off to Melbourne for a nice holiday, but before I go I wanted to quickly post this card I made for this weeks Try Stampin’ on Tuesday. I got the idea from our groups ATC swaps this month, I really wanted to put mine to use as I made an extra one. The challenge was black and white silhouette,  and this weeks sketch fitted the size and shape perfectly.

As you can see I have copied the clouds over to the main card front to allow the swap to blend in, and I couldn’t believe how much it really worked. I am loving the neutral look with a touch of colour, I think it really brings out the focal point of the card.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:


this is a close up of the swap, sorry I couldn’t seem to focus properly.

Have a great week and I shall try my best to do next weeks sketch but it maybe a bit of a push.
