Timeless Silhouette

When I first saw this silhouette stamp, I thought it was so reminiscent of Max and I on our wedding day. When Max walked in on me making this card he exclaimed, "Is that us?!"

What I really like about this image is that it's timeless. She could be wearing a bubblegum pink, taffeta dress and he a powder blue, ruffled tux. Or is she donning a scarlet red ball gown and he a classic black tuxedo? Where are they going? Where have they been? Are they kissing hello or kissing goodbye? What year is it, 1942 or 2008? A couple in love or a father kissing his daughter on her wedding day? I cant wait to explore the possibilities!The card front has a solid black base with a smaller pink mat, edges distressed with a stitched border. The silhouette image was stamped on top of the French Script background and adhered on a solid black scalloped mat. Rhinestones, flower, and distressed sentiment complete the look.Thank you for stopping by!
