I am giving one last love, probably, to Nature’s Beauty stamp set.  I said probably because I may use it again as just a winter time card.  I love the animals and the background I envision with them.



As with most of my cards, this did not end up the way I intended when I began.  But I am okay with that.  I started with the stamp set and saw the negative of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies from the challenge card the other day.  That gave me the idea for sponging that I have not done in some time.

I used Pool Party and Balmy Blue for my background sponging but they did not show up very well.  I wanted light, but this was too light.  So I decided to give it a border.  I first used the Journaling Pens on page 170 of the Annual Catalog.  With the negative still in place, I just drew around the inside.  I was a bit off, the negative slipped, but that is okay as well.

The journaling pens gave the look I wanted, but it still needed something.  I decided this leaf would work perfectly.  Sort of like the old pictures you see draped in pine boughs.

I hope this gives you some ideas for all of the negatives I am sure you have from using your die shapes.  Thank you for stopping in today.  Merry Christmas Eve!!
