Friendly Silhouettes

I'm back this week after having to miss last weeks challenge. Life got a little overwhelming, so I took a short break. This week the Bloggers Challenge is silhouettes. My card is featuring the miniature silhouettes new from Tim Holtz The card was diecut using a flip-it die from Sizzix creating a swing card. The topview shows the card in mid swing.
On the left is the closed front view and on the right is the open full view. The base cardstock is from Club Scrap. In the right corners are diecut corners from Cheery Lynn (Lace corner Deco D). Along the right edge is a Cheery Lynn diecut border (Country Girl Border) with a rose (Cheery Lynn large rose). The flower border on the front is cut with a Spellbinders die. The heart border on the reverse of the swing circle is Cheery Lynn's Celtic Heart. Sprinkled over the front and reverse of the card are rhinestone embellishments.
I am entering this card into a few other challenges. Take a Wond is looking for hearts and flowers. Tuesday Throwdown has the theme of gemstones. Cheery Lynn wants to see borders and edgers.
