Lady in black

I was recently given a few blank cards with die cut silhouettes which have a velvety feel, so I've used one of them on this card. The embossed swirls on the silver mirror card were achieved with a dream weaver stencil. The glittered strips on the left were from Poundland the and sentiment strip is one that's been in a box for ages. The 'with love' sentiment was from Craftime.

This is for:

CRAFT 180: inspired by a film - the silhouette reminds me of 'Mary Poppins'
Order of the opus gluei 143: it figures - either numbers or silhouette of a figure (hope this is OK)
Cards galore November: silhouette
Card manai 7: embossing
Everybody art 212: embossing
Fairytale 54: embossing
Friday mashup 84: hey hey boss man - dry embossing
House of gilli 45: celebrations - birthday
Raise the bar 119: birthday theme
Totally papercrafts 142: cute and girly
Eclectic ellapu 4: it's a vintage thing
Pile it on 45: make it sparkle
Scrap cards 37: recycle
Unstampabelles 17: monochromatic
Simply create too 26: use your stash - I've had the stencil for ages and have only used it once - also the glittered strips and sentiments are from old stash
