Timeless Tuesday Guest Designer

I am so thrilled and honored to be the guest designer for Flourishes this month. From the first time I discovered their stamps I've been hooked on the elegant and gorgeous stamp sets.  The challenge this week is silhouettes and I used this beautiful First Noel set and embossed it in white on black paper.  I added a beautiful carnival border from Cheery Lynn around the card and then some very sparkly silver snowflakes to the corners.  Silver holographic mirror card and the base card is black.  Please check out the Design Teams wonderful creations:
