dotty spots

I am loving learning new  techniques with dies and how versatile they are. This technique is inlaying the die cut back into the negative. For this card I went a little over board and cut the same die in white, black, pearlised brown ,pearlised grey and black and white dotty paper.

It is simply a bit of a jigsaw puzzle,inlay the ring die back into one of the negatives of a different colour. Use different pieces from the various negatives to inlay back into the die.

I think it makes a great male card in these colours and plan to try different colours for a more girlie look in the future.

I haven't added a sentiment at the moment but think it would be great with a silver happy birthday, hello or even a good luck card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
