Sympathy Silhouette

Hi there 🙂 I seem to be getting bogged down in strips of paper that are leftovers from cutting 12×12″ sheets down for envelopes. I’ve been saving them, and seeing as how I make a LOT of envelopes, well…..time to do something with them! I grabbed an assortment of green strips, and cut them with a scallped edge die. After repositioning them about a hundred times, the idea for this card came to me. I layered the die cut strips on the top of a piece of CS that I’d stamped and embossed. The silhouette flowers, and butterfly seemed so peaceful, that I decided to add to my sympathy card stash. A stamped and embossed sentiment, a few black gems, and black matting finish this card off.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
