Using Negative Space....

Good morning to you! I have a card to share with you today that uses the negative space of a Cricut cut. I love this dragonfly from the Martha Stewart's All Occasions Cake Art cartridge. I used the dragonfly for another project and couldn't part with the negative piece. I tucked a piece of lace behind it as well as some Crate paper. I also added a button tied with twine and glued a tiny Prima flower to the top of that. I hand stitched the perimeter of the square and gave it a few brush strokes of paint to shabby it up a bit. I popped the image on pop dots to give it a shadow box effect. I matted the image using a Spellbinder's scalloped die. I tied a pink ribbon to finish it off!

And this most certainly is a happy day! Today is prom day! Cort is having her hair done, girlfriends over, and of course her "boyfriend!" I am setting up my photography backdrop and hoping that I get a few good shots of my girl with her friends!


On Saturday, I am heading to a Cricut Circle crop at the Archivers in Downer's Grove! I am looking forward to meeting fellow Cricut Circle DT member Juliana Michaels and hanging with the ladies from the Circle! My plan is to color with my Copics.....and of course talk..... A LOT! ; )


Have a great weekend!
