Created this Mother's Day Thank You Card using negative cuts from prior Tag creation. Used Stampin' Up colors: Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant & Melon Mambo. Thought it was a good way to use up the negative cuts for an artsy look. Wishing I had made the green piece a bit more sized at one end. Gives me an idea for next time to cut the pieces all the same size. I do like how the sentiment 'thanks' and 'Mom' fit inside the 3rd negative piece.
