New Release Day at THE CRAFTY PAD

**7/6/12 UPDATE** Apologies to anyone who previously visited and was unable to view the image in this post. I have now deleted the old ones and re-uploaded them, and THINK they are now fine (I can see them from my end!) Thanks so much if you've taken the time to revisit me, it is appreciated. :)

Good Morning bloggers and welcome to  New Release Day at The Crafty Pad! The exciting news is not only that we have some fab new images, but we're also giving all our readers the opportunity to
This month's new releases are some gorgeous silhouettes, and are available now at The Crafty Pad Designs Store.

Here they are:

So, here's my card:

I made a twister card using the Birds in Frame Silhouette image and a natty little template from Crafty Stash. You get 6 different ones for just £1.50! I altered the shape of the image from oval to a circle and distressed it with ink, and added it after cutting and folding the card.

I printed my DP (from Jessica Sprague's French Market collection) straight onto the cardstock (a different design on each side.) I also added a flourish from TCP and a Happy Birthday sentiment before printing.

I inked the edges both inside and out.

 I added some paper roses and gems from my stash to complete.

I'm from ATC's Card with Attitude and I can't see your images either. I've made a note to come back. It would be a shame not to see what you have created or not to be entered in our challenge and Top 3.
