Hi peeps - hope you are all well and enjoying some winter sunshine wherever you may be.
I have been searching through that dark corner of my craftroom again, and found another
forgotten, yet suitable stamp for this week's challenge at LESS IS MORE - which is SILHOUETTES!
Mandi and Chrissie, the lovely LIM Divas, have some fabulous inspiration for us, as always, so do pop over to take a peek. 

Flutterby stamp from Imagination Crafts, stamped with Ranger Jet Black Archival ink onto rectangle of white cardstock.
Punched circle mask for the setting sun, then the sky was created with Distress Inks - Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, a soft touch of Fired Brick, and Weathered Wood - all applied with Cut 'n Dry foam.
More butterflies stamped above the rectangle.
Sentiment - one of my all-time favourites from PSX (dated 1999 so probably discontinued) ?
A little Glamour Dust added to the sun.
I am also entering this card into the following challenge:-
Quirky Crafts - Clean and Simple!
Update - December 5th - my card won 1st Prize at Quirky Crafts - thanks DT ladies!
Love to all, and welcome to my new followers -  Geraldine, Vicky, Debbie and Joan !
