Songbird Silhouettes card

This card was created for a previous Stampendous catalog and I thought that I'd share it with you. Using the Perfectly Clear "Silhouette Songbirds" set, I stamped and embossed the birds randomly over aqua cardstock and used Chocolate embossing powder. I love the chocolate and aqua combo so much that I even have it my bedroom and bathroom. The swirls also come from this set (yeah, yeah, there she goes on and on about how much she loves the sets!) as well as the little flowers on the bottom panel. The entire card was stamped and embossed which always impresses people until they actually become stampers and realize just how simple it really is. The scalloped stripes on the magenta panel and sentiment came from a different set called "Formal Frames" which is also a personal favorite because it is so elegant and can be used in so many ways. You could change the color scheme on this card to maybe...silver and white with a touch of lavender...and you could make a beautiful wedding/anniversary card. What color schemes would you like to try with this set?

Pam, this is gorgeous!!! Love how you've used the scallop stamp to create the look of pattern paper!
