Woodland Silhouettes

I'm back again today with a quick Birthday card I have made this morning for a forgotten Male Birthday oops! and a challenge, just  a quick post tonight as I have had my family over today with a very lively Grandson, we have had a lovely day but  are both shattered now Grandad has played trains and then we have played board games somehow I always loose........Now its feet up and a bit  R&R.....lol after I have  typed this up.

Less is more Challenge for this week #86 is "Recipe" Take 3 Challenges I have taken
Wk 5 Embossing
Wk 42 Silhouette
Wk 55 Punches or Die cuts

Background made by spraying Luminarte Shimmering Mists onto white card, Stamps are Sheena Douglas  Highlands Silhouette .......which I am loving using they make a card so quickly, I embossed them using cosmic shimmer black embossing powder, corners were also stamped and embossed onto same background, main card was embossed with Couture Creations folder Houndstooth, punches used from Stampin' Up!

Can't quite believe I have managed to play along at Less is More on the first day!!  Hoping I have read the challenge correctly ladies......

Would also like to link with Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Emboss It!

Thanks for looking 
Bye for now
