And I have a card to share with you - made for this week's Less is More - LIM42 - where the theme is to use silhouettes in your card design. Chrissie and Mandi have provided a definition for silhouette as follows:
n: A silhouette is the image of a person, an object or scene consisting of the outline and a basically featureless interior with the silhouetted object usually being black
I've made another card for my Christmas collection - I still have quite a few to make, so I'm using challenge themes to help me with designs. The image I've used is from Joanna Sheen's wonderful CD - Dancing with Shadows - where all the images are silhouettes - so I may have another card to share before the end of the week!!
The hardest thing about this card was find the right shade of card to make the mat. I cut out the largest Fleur de Lis Square and then cut out a section in the middle to make it the right size for the image. Finally, I added this really simple sentiment - it's what Christmas is really all about!

Spellbinders: Fleur de Lis Squares (S4-318) #4
Accessories: Card and stamp from stash
It started out so bright this morning, but is now really grey and dull, and there's fog creeping in. I don't want the fog to hang around. It's been playing havoc with flights from Heathrow. We're flying on Wednesday, so I'm hoping that a strong wind blows up and clears all the fog away :) I'm off to sort out clothes and bits for our trip. See you later!!
YOu must be so pleased to have your heating back.....especially as they say its getting colder...
Lovely card, love the frame around it..
lovely card, deborah... so glad that you have heat, again!
A gorgeous card Deborah. I have this cd but haven't noticed this lovely image. Must dig it out and have another look. Glad to hear you're nice and warm again. Sue.x
That's a beautiful image - really love this card x
Glad you're warmer again. This is a super card for it really sums up the meaning of the celebration.
I like the way you have offset the image & balanced it with the sentiment.
Yay - heating! It's amazing how much we miss it when it's not there! A great card for the LiM challenge Deborah and the ornate mat is perfect for the image.
This is lovely, Deborah. What a beautiful image and mat. Glad to hear you have heat. :) Ann Y.
So glad you're warming up!!!! Makes you appreciate the little things! Love your card - I think the frame looks perfect with the nativity scene! Beautiful card Deborah!
Excellent card Deborah, I'm so glad you've got your heating fixed, it's miserable being cold, Gay xxx
I love this one Deborah. Glad you've got your heating fixed
Great image Deborah and I agree...perfect sentiment too :)
Glad you finally got the boiler looked at...you don't need that worry while you're away..only 2 sleeps now..eek!
What a beautiful nativity image, and the sentiment goes with it beautifully.
So pleased you have some heat again.
Have a safe journey.
Glad you have your heating back on! It's been quite cold the last few days! A lovely card Deborah, a really wonderful silhouette.
This is a beautiful christmas card!
It's dreadful when systems fail isn't it... we're not equipped to cope with the cold in a normally centrally heated home.
Glad you've got heat again.
Great idea to cut down the frame, I think I may have tended to go with black gold for that. It actually looks yellow on my monitor... what colour is it in reality?
Super card anyway!
Thanks so much
