BSS- Monday Challenge - Split Negative

Good Morning! Happy Monday, a new start to a new week. Today's card is for the Challenge at my local stamp store, Buffalo Stamps and Stuff. This technique is called split negative and there is great tutorial for this at:
The flower and butterfly stamps are by Stampendous. Basically you cut your cardstock to the exact size of the wood or acrylic block you are using, so placement is a snap. I suggest the first time you try this you use just one stamp. After stamping and embossing in contrasting colors, you cut the image in half and then join one each together. Mount on the card and embellish.
You actually get two sets! The lace border is by Fiskars. The pearls are Kaiser. I hope you have time to try this, it's a lot of fun. Thanks for stopping by. Until tomorrow..........
