TSTR-Sweet Silhouettes...

I have to sneak in one more card for this week.  I spent most of the week learning my new computer's ins and outs and changes...but I needed a break. So I headed over to check out this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room and knew I had to play along with this one - the challenge is to make a project with a silhouette as a central feature. I decided to play around on my new computer (what better way to make sure all your files made it over than to need them, right?) and make up a few ATC-sized collages using some of my silhouette clip art.

I used one of them on today's card, and I couldn't resist adding the feathers on her hat, and the bouquet of flowers below her neck. :)

Here's the inspiration photo Rebekah gave us to work from this week:

I matched the colors of the flowers in the collage with a cluster of  mini paper roses off to the side, sitting atop a matching aqua scrunched bow.  An embellished memo pin holds the mini sentiment tag...

I die cut the collage into an oval shape, framed it with a larger white oval, then layered both over a beaded oval diecut in black. While the black cardstock was still in the die, I used some Viva Decor Old Silver rub on the raised bead portions, then topped each with a mini pearl in the center...

Patterned papers:  Prima Almanac collection;  Echo Park Dots & Stripes/Metropolitan collection
Cameo collage elements:  French label & white frame: TheGraphicsFairy;  silhouette image:  Dover Publications; 
flowers and feathers:  (flowers783 and flowers524)
Dies:  Spellbinders Classic Ovals Small, Classic Ovals Large; Beaded Ovals      Pearls:  Recollections
Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts      Hug Snug seam binding      Viva Decor Old Silver      Tim Holtz Memo Pin
