Less is More - Silhouettes

Before I get into this weeks Less is More challenge can I just thank everyone that visited me last week and commented on my card, I really appreciate it :)

Anyway struggled again with this weeks Silhouette challenege as you can see below, had various ideas but couldn't seem to pull any of them together.
Anyway went with a stamp I have had for ever and never made into a card. After stamping the image I clear heat embossed it a few times and popped it in the freezer to crack the glaze (doesn't show up that well in photo) and matted on some black card. Base card has a pearl sheen to it and added stamped a sentiment.

Hope everyone is having a fab weekend and another thank you to Chrissie & Mandi for running the best challenge :)

Lovely card. I stamped that image earlier but part of it never stamps - so frustrating. Had it years and years, so too late to send it back but it's a lovely, lovely image. Love Magenta!

Beautiful card! This stamp has been waiting for this card. The broken ice technique is great, and fits perfectly by this image and this season. I love it!
