Double D Challenge - Silhouettes

Hello Dear Friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!

Team Darlene is hosting today and we've come up with a fabulous
theme and mood board.

The theme is:  SILHOUETTES

There are so many beautiful silhouette stamps and dies
on the market today and I think it makes for such an impact on a card.

Today I chose to use a new die I purchased at the Dies R Us Store called 'Reading Tree' from Die Versions.
 Die-Versions - Whispers - Reading Tree
As you may have noticed, I modified it a bit by cutting the 'book' out of the little boys hands to make it look as though he is just sitting under the tree 'thinking'.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge!  I look forward to seeing your creations!  If you are not aware, there are badges offered for a Favorite and Top 3 designs which are chosen by the team ... AND ... one pick will receive a prize!  The prize I am offering for this challenge is the sweet Frantic Stamper 'Silhouette Kids' seen here:

 You have to PLAY to WIN ... so what are you waiting for??

For more inspiration be sure to pop over to the Double D Challenge Blog and check out what the team has created!  These ladies are amazingly talented!!

Thanks for stopping by . . .
As always . . .

Papers:  White cs, Black cs, Kaiser Craft 'Sweet Nothings' dp
Accessories:  Martha Stewart 3-in-1 butterfly punch, Nuvo black crystal drops

What a beautiful die and card! I used to have a similar stamp and loved it. The paper you chose is dreamily pretty in the background. I'd be sitting under that tree reading. Done that many times under the cherry tree on a hot day.
