Accentuate the Negative

Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge this week is to use negative images. For this challenge, I punched out a circle shape, then placed a butterfly inside it. The Kiwi Kiss panel is on dimensionals to further emphasize the negative space.

Health update: I've been diagnosed with benign positional vertigo. It should go away on its own soon, but if it doesn't, then I will have to do physical therapy to realign the balance in my inner ear. Thanks again for all your well wishes. Hopefully I will be feeling better soon!

Stamps: Starlight Starbright (Verve)
Paper: Kiwi Kiss textured, PTI Sweet Blush, PTI white
Ink: Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: circle punch, Martha Stewart classic butterfly punch, corner rounder punch, ribbon (PTI), pearls (Kaiserscrapbook), dimensionals

This looks beautiful, the Kiwi and white gives it an elegant feel, and those pearls, are just the right touch.
