Seeing double - positive and negative

City crafter 99 is 'seeing double' using the positive and the negative of a die or punch. I found up a Quickutz die that I haven't used for years (in fact, I have a box of them that haven't been touched for ages) - it produces a circle with the flower cut out, so there is also the inside of the flower to use separately. I used scraps of yellow card to cut the flowers, so it's another chance to play in  Pixie's crafty snippets 11 playground and Hiding in my craftroom 37: super scraps Saturday.  I've used a cream shaped card blank that I sponged with mustard seed distress ink - for Prairie fairy Fridaays 74: distress it. The chick is a sticker from a pound shop.
