It's lovely weather for a sleigh ride...

together with you!  OH YEAH!  2 months until Christmas as of today, people!!  Are you panicking yet?  Do you have enough Christmas cards for the people on your list this year?  Here's another one for my stash, bringing me to a total of 50:
 
I love this silhouette image!  I have a few of these vintage-type images from the Silhouette Store, but this is the first one I have used.  It cut so beautifully out of the black cardstock...I always worry about such detailed images when I size them down.  The winter night sky background was created using Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Dusty Concord, and Black Soot.  The snowflakes/stars were made with a white gel pen.  I hand cut the snowy ground, and edged it with Star Dust Stickles (I swear!)  The itty bitty sentiment comes from the Partridge in a Pear Tree stamp set Martha Stewart sold at Walmart several years ago.  I am so pleased with how this one turned out!

  2. Gorgeous card! I honestly thought that was patterned paper until I read your post... it's fabulous and you did a smokin' good job of it. I also really like the silhouette, it's so pretty.

  3. This is so pretty. Your card makes me think I need that kind of a machine to cut out dies like this. I adore the background with the black silhouette. Absolutely beautiful! Thanks for joining us at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' for our winter Transportation challenge! Hugs, Gail
