White on dark

A friend pointed out the gallery of Eager Beaver, at SplitCoastStampers, and I was intrigued by several of her cards using white cut outs on dark DP.  They were stunning.  I do not have any floral dies similar to hers, but I decided to try with this Cheery Lynn butterfly and sentiment.  My result is not any thing like hers, but it is a style I will probably try to repeat - and improve. I think this qualifies for the challenge to use a technique that is unlike what we usually do.
The three small panels are DCWV.  I embossed the bg with a Cuttlebug Swirls folder.
