Sentiment and Silhouette

I just came home from a trip to the west coast of Norway and I was so happy to see that my package from LOTV had arrived. I just couldn't wait to try one of my new stamps, so I stamped the sentiment with black ink on kraft and added clear embossing powder. I just love the vintage look of this sentiment. I also love silhouette images, and this one is from a stamp set from Kort&Godt. I gave the image the same treatment as the sentiment.
My choice of background DP, a leftover with letters and numbers, was actually my starting point for this card design - I immediately thought of using it when I spotted the Inkspirational photo. I mounted the DP on a panel of beige paper and distressed the edges. I used letter stickers to complete the sentiment. The letters stickers and image have been mounted on foam. And voilà - a rather quick and easy male card!

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #33 Photo
2) Aud Sentiments Challenge - #8 Anything but a birthday card with a sentiment
3) Paper Crafting Journey -Distressed/Vintage
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

I love this, Pia. It has a real retro feel and would be perfect for a man's card (although I'd love to receive it myself and I'm not a man!) I didn't know LOTV did sentiments like this - must check out.
Thanks for your message on my teacher's card - your comment about the DT's individual styles made me go and check and you are right!
Thank you for joining us at Inkspirational Challenges. Come back next week! Marina

This is wonderful Pia. I love the way you have used the sentiment by adding the extra words to it and the silhouette image works so well with it too.
