Sweet stamps challenge #129: Silhouette

Hello my dear crafty friends! It's Sweet Stamps Silhouette challenge week and this is just a kind of cards I love!
So I did this long and  vintage card with  In Her Easter Bonnet Silhouettes stamp using clear embossing ink and Black EP .

 But here it my small tip to all of embossers: sometimes you still see those small white cardstock spots , even if you are a good stamper. Go and pick a black embossing pen and just play with the pen over all white spots. Then add some more black EP and you are done. Just perfect black silhouette from the perfect adorable stamp.

And now for the rest of the card. I used Wycenanka chipboard for  the frame and the sentiment, covered with clear embossing ink and Copper Metallic powder. Almost nothing more, but a couple of pearls and an old vintage button over the frame.  You can call it CLEAN AND SIMPLE VINTAGE .I just call it LOVELY.
 And this lovely stamp is in the shop for your!
And now is your turn! Play with our challenge and you always have a great chance to win!
 I also enter this to Make it Monday Silhuettes challenge.
