Getting back on track

I'm trying to get my life back on track. After a weeklong virus, things have gotten out of hand, especially my crafting. There is housework and laundry to catch up on, and I've got to get the pertinent Sunday school pages photocopied and ready for tomorrow. And because, like you, I have an ardent addiction passion for cardmaking, I want to get back to that as well. Before I actually felt well enough to make anything, I noticed that there was an Emphasize the Negative challenge over at Moxie Fab World.  So I mulled over my idea for a while, and came up with this.

Here I emphasized the negative spaces on multiple levels. The blue is actually the topmost layer, and the red under layer is emphasized with cut letters and crimping. The red layer is further emphasized by the repeated phrase you did it underneath that, at the lowest layer of all. I think it will make a fun graduation card.


Everything but the star stickers (Sticko), and the white card base (SU) are scraps and bits. Dang I love that!! So, happy dancing everyone.
