A Flower 4 You

Today's ways to use it challenge asked you to think negative thoughts. No, not those kinds of negative thoughts, but thinking about how to use negative space. I decided to utilize the negative space left by my scallop punch.

I'd also been thinking about Kazan's sketch this week over at 2 Sketches 4 You, and I came up with this card. I popped up the smallest panel to further emphasize the negative space. I think it looks really cool, but what do you think?

Stamps: none
Paper: Barely Banana, BasicGrey Gypsy dp
Ink: none
Accessories: scallop punch, dimensionals, flower (Prima), velvet brad (Doodlebug), button (Oriental Trading Co.), ribbon (American Crafts), rub-on (SU)
