Serene Silhouettes

The Serene Silhouettes stamp set just doesn't get the attention it deserves.  It is great for all occasions and suitable for both masculine and feminine themes.

This card combines Crumb Cake and Pool Party.  I added a background of En Francais embossed in white (one of my favorite techniques recently).  The image was stamped in Black Staz'On and a sponge dauber was used to add color to the entire image and background.  I used an oval framelit to cut out a frame in Very Vanilla, which was popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals.  A birthday sentiment from Bloomin' with Kindness was stamped in black on the frame.  A small butterfly was added.  Check out the paper piercing around the oval!  Doesn't it add great detail.
