Celebrate Summer

I enjoy making black and white cards and designing this vintage card  was so easy because I used a great vintage graphic from Graphics Fairy called Silhouette Chridren. After printing the image, I cut with an oval die and placed on a black frame cut with a Cheery Lynn die. This went a top an embossed white mat and then a black mat and white base. Finished with an organza ribbon and double loop bow and some black pearls. Thought the sentiment "Celebrate Summer" suited the image.
