Memory Box Blog Blitz

Memory Box Blog Blitz challenge

supplie: white card, Memory box papers from the Minuet and Valise collections, #98160 die Perched Reed Bird, JoAnn organdy ribbon, Hero Arts sentiment from CL583 Right at Home, aged mahogany distress ink, blue pearl eye

Just sharing a card I made for the Blog Blitz over at Outside the Box blog.  We are to make a card and use at least 1 Memory Box stamp or die.  I don't have any of my stamps here with me, but I did order this amazing little Perched Reed Bird die after taking the Clean and Simple class online.  And I have some beautiful Memory Box papers here too, so this is what I came up with.  Julie Ebersole used this idea of the negative image of the die in the left corner, popping the design paper panel above it.

This fits into the Moxie Fab World's Cool Tool's Week: Die Cutting Challenge, too, so I'm entering it there.
