It's Simple! Call Me.........

Hello all!
It's time to showcase the June New Releases from The Crafty Pad Designs!
These are in the form of Silhouettes this time!
These have a real vintage feel about them & could be used for cards for male or female
I was given the Table image to work with, but I loved all of these images
so much, I just had to get my hands on more!
In the end, I used the Table, the Telephone & the Chair
Here's my creation

I made a pretty simple Black & White card.
I merged the images in my graphics programme
then added some text. I then printed the image onto 
some linen embossed cardstock.
 I cut out the image using an inverted scalloped nestie
then matted onto a scalloped circle of black cardstock.
The A6 card blank was pre-embossed with spots!
I fixed the image to the card using foam pads to give a bit of dimension
then added a double bow & a stick pin.

A trio of black self adhesive pearls finishes off the card!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like my little card!
Pop on over to the Challenge Blog to check out the rest of the images
