Simply Silhouettes

I made this card for Carolyn King's Heart to Heart challenge. In an effort to raise awareness for World Alzheimer’s Day, Carolyn has enlisted the help of a lot of people and companies from the stamping community. There is HUGE blog candy to be won, but more importantly, the opportunity to say thank you to the caregivers of those with Alzheimer's. Check out Carolyn's blog for more information. I hope you are inspired to participate as well!

This card was inspired by Beate's Be Inspired Challenge #24. I used the green, brown, and milky white colours, and the silhouette shapes as my starting point. I knew I wanted to use the Bird Call embossing folder, and decided to highlight the embossing with ink. I dragged my Whisper White pad across the surface, and then sponged on Chocolate Chip and Old Olive.

A very simple card, but I really wanted to showcase the embossing.
