Using the Negative for some Positive

I made this card using Seth Apter dies and posted it early June.  When I made the original card, I nested the dies to conserve paper and created another image by carefully cutting around the die cuts to center the cuts in a panel. And to think, I almost threw this away!!

Since I had the panel cut out of this very distinctive basic grey pattern paper, I used similar colours to create this new card. The additional pattern paper is Blue Awning from K & Co. I'm fairly confident that it has been discontinued, but you never know what you will find if you look.

I've used a cheeky sentiment from Riley & Co. Funny Bones. I must admit, I do love me some sass when it's tasteful. I'm not sure if this could have used a little more embellishment or not, so for today, I decided less is more!

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned as I start blogging about my other passion - teaching Fashion. I have a whole pile of projects that I'm working on and I've been diligently designing and getting on the treadmill daily to attain 10,000 steps per day. It's proving challenging to design for a changing body shape!!
