Negative to Positive

I was going through my patterned papers recently, doing a little inventory of what I have. I came across a lovely paper covered in flowers that I've never used before and was inspired.

My favorite color is red, especially a bright, cheery red, and I love how the flowers remind me of wildflowers that are starting to pop up as the weather warms up here. I cut the flowers from Create a Critter, but I used the negative of the cut. I then put coordinating paper behind it.

The mat for the stamp is also from Create a Critter. I finished off the card with red ribbon and gems for the flowers. Inside the card I used the positive part of the cut.
