Sweet Silhouette...

Hi Friends!
How's your weekend going?  It's a bit chilly here.
But, it's brighter weather than yesterday and less
windy.  We had snow squalls that presented a big
problem for drivers.  The roads were quite icy with
white outs from the snow. So, there were many
accidents.  I'm glad we weren't out at that time.  We
went out later in the afternoon to dinner and movie.
We saw an action packed movie, Die Hard.  Talk
about problem for drivers...hehehe!  Anyways, it
was a good movie with some cute story lines re-
garding father/son bonding!
Ok, onto my card.  I'm entering this card in the
challenge at the The Shabby Tea Room.  The
stamp silhouette is from Close to My Heart.  I
colored the flowers with copic markers.  A doily
was placed behind and pearls added around the
frame.  More pearls to the center of the flowers.
Flower trim and ribbon to pretty up the card. 
And, the Mind's Eye lovely paper already had
a sweet sentiment printed...every day is a special
occasion.  Don't you agree?  I hope you have a
special kind of occasion day!  Thanks so much
for dropping by today!  Take care, hugs!
