DRS Designs Challenge #175- Color Challenge

Good morning!
Time for another challenge at DRS!
Today starts the color challenge.

You know the out of the box cutting technique for dies right? well, this is the reverse.  Instead of having part of the image poke out of the die cut, I have part of the image poking into the opening.  I stamped the large flower and then put my die dow and traced around the area where the flower was.  I then started my scissors inside of the marked oval and cut around the flowers that would poke in, laid my die down and put the petals on TOP of the die.  Then I cut.
I made my blue folded card base and laid the flower/oval panel on top of it and put the next size die dow into the open oval, tape it to the blue and then ran it through my cutter (just the blue card base).  I then colored my image after masking my first flower and stamping some more.  When finished I foam taped it to the card base with the oval opening.  Stamping the sentiment inside was another bit of a challenge.  I placed removable tape under my white panel and LIGHTLY drew a line where my oval opening was and the petals, I then used my stamp aligner and stamped the sentiment.  Took off the removable tape and stuck it down good then erased my lines.
That's about it!  Hope you have time to join the challenge.  To see the other designers cards and to join in, click HERE.
