May 2020 Week 3 Theme of Silhouette for 19th week at 52 CCT challenge blog

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart's desire is only display with this week's card due to the Nativity scene silhouette. I found this clipart freebie online to use and added some varying blues, indigos, and blue-violet for background color just using colored pencils. I like the soft look of them so I tend to use them for lots of the digital images in my crafting.

Tracy has been hostess this month at 52 CCT and her theme for #19-2020 is silhouette. On the blog she suggests using a stamp to create a silhouette, however I'm very limited with my stamps and chose to go the online clipart route.

To give the Nativity scene silhouette with sentiment the focus of the card, I kept the background papers and embellishments very basic.
