Seize The Birthday Challenge - Use The Negative!

I made this card for the Seize The Birthday Challenge.

The  challenge rules are that you must use the negative portion of your die cut. The part that you would normally throw away.

The base of this card was inked with "Broken China" Distress Ink. Blue glitter paper was used for the card  layer and also the butterfly die cut. For the negative space I used a Penny Black die "Fresh Breeze" and saved the die cut for a future project.  I love how the blue glitter paper shows through. I used a Elizabeth Craft "Happy  Birthday" die.

I almost forgot to mention that the background of the butterfly was cut from a left over piece of paper that was stamped using the Bokeh Technique.

Thanks for visiting my blog today. Hope you like this birthday card.
Have a great day,
Ta Ta For Now.
