Golden Silhouette

Welcome

I was rummaging through my dies the other day and discovered this s/b Silhouette die which has languished there for an embarrassingly long time, 
unused - so I put that to rights.


The Silhouette and wreath were cut from a slightly textured gold paper, so I did not emboss at all


The head has this beautiful wee butterfly, which I lifted with tweezers and accented with pearls.


The Fancy Tags Three die was used to cut the sentiment  panel from the same gold paper.


I stamped and gold embossed the sentiment on white card before layering over the tag.

I assembled the die cuts on the centre panel of design paper (from the Prima Fairy Flora pad).


And took the waste from some stick on edges to accent the borders of the panel.  
The final details were the pearls on the sentiment tag.

This is a beauty...Love the golden paper you used for your die-cuts. I am grateful that you joined our Challenge this week at Word Art Wednesday. Sharing the blessings of God's Word in Hebrews 3:6 and it says, "But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast." Have a great weekend. Hugs always!

What a pretty and great die! I've never seen this Spellbinder's one before but I like it.
I also like how you framed the silhouette and that gold paper is gorgeous... the texture is really nice. I love textured paper.

I like cameos, and this one is very pretty. Pearls work better than gems on a card mlike this and you have accented your very well. Good idea to us up the ´waste´from a peel off too. Kate x
