Overlaid Summer Silhouettes

I had a fairly productive evening last night and managed to make 2 cards! Here is one of them...

I decided to use my Summer Silhouettes Stamp set as I haven't used it for a while. I stamped the leaves twice each inking to give some a faded effext and the same with the fussy cut flowers.

The button is made with Simply Pressed Clay (I always have some white ones made ready to colour with a marker or rub with inked tissue). I embossed and tore a panel of Core'dinations Basic Gray card for texture and a slightly 'shabby' look.

Stamps - Summer Silhouettes, Pretty Petites (ret)
Ink - Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Basic Gray
Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Gray, Basic Gray Core'dinations
Embossing - Woodgrain EF
Punch - Petite Curly Label
Other - Simply Pressed Clay, Baker's Twine
