Stamp Off Negative Space with Leaflets Framelits

I'm glad you're here, to check out my Stamp Off
Challenge with Buffy and Susan!

Today we are playing with negative space.  Not negative
people (because Susan and Buffy are special, delightful ladies),
but the creation of a shape in the top layer of a card,
that is colored or layered beneath.
I am often challenged to come up with a sympathy card,
because emotion or concern for the other, messes with
my creativity.  Since the leaves have been falling,
I was really inspired to create a negative space with the 
Leaflets Framelits on page 193.
 I felt that this beautiful plaid from the Warmth & Cheer DSP stack (on page 13 of the Holiday Catalog) set the perfect mood.
The sentiment comes from the Flourishing Phrases set
on page 49 of SU annual catalog.  This set has
a selection of wonderful sentiments.  I forgot to take a picture
of the inside of this card, but the corresponding message
appears within.
The Garden Green Baker's Twine comes from the Trio Pack
on page 16 of the Holiday catalog.
Now click on over to see what Susan and Buffy 
did with their negative spaces!!

Great mind, once again, think alike, Jackie. I love how you backed your card with DSP. Beautiful colors too.

Love this card, Jackie. Clever use of DSP and the negative space. (Do you and Susan talk about these challenges when I'm not around?)

I love this gorgeous plaid behind the die cut leaf, Jackie! It has the perfect colours for fall, and for a calm, soothing effect for a sympathy card.
