Happy Valentine's Day

Sharon Johnson's challenge today is to use a negative image. When punching out a shape, the negative image is the sheet left over with the hole in it, rather than the object punched. Please read all about it over at Sharon's blog. Be sure to look at her card too. It is stunning!

After reading about the challenge for today, I turned to my Cuttlebug area and saw this "negative" image and decided to use it for one of my Great Grand children's valentine card. I thought it worked very well.

By the way, be sure to stop over to Jerri's blog and see her beautiful place card. She did a great tutorial telling us how she does her water coloring too, so be sure to scroll down to read it.
