Day 1 of Clear Dollar Stamp's SNEAK PEEKS! 2 Cards to share!

Hello All!
Today I get to show you cards made with a couple of different "Clear Diollar Stamps" stamp sets.
The first one uses the pretty "Silhouette Thoughts" illustrated by the very talented Laurie Wilson. This set come with silhouettes of several images plus the "I thought of You Today" sentiment. It would work great for many occasions!
On this card, I used gorgeous "The Paper Temptress" papers which adds richness and elegance in my opinion! The names of the papers are:
Stardreams Antique Gold
Neenah Black
Crystal Stardreams
Metallic Gold

In this shot, you can see the beautiful sparkle on the white paper really well.
Don't forget...you can click any picture to enlarge.
