Cutting Edge #5 - Happy Birthday!


All around blog land yesterday, I kept coming across this amazing inspiration for The Cutting Edge #5 by Melania Deasy.





I haven't played along with this new challenge yet - sometimes it's so hard to keep up with everything you want to do, right? But this card is just so pretty, and it's such a great idea to use a negative die cut with a positive die cut laid over top. I knew my time had come!

I chose a Papertrey "Happy" (negative die cut) and a Simon Says Stamp "birthday" (coloured, positive die cut) and added a few mini-sequins.

  2. Oh my, Ardyth, this is so fantastic ... the rainbow of colours on the delicate die cut is deliciously eyecatching against the bold black happy! I'm so with you on the hard-to-keep-up-with-everything thing ... it's the anything v everything challenge! Anita :)
