As I considered the elements I wanted to include on the card, I remembered a newly acquired Cuttlebug embossing folder (Forest). I knew I wanted to make that the star of the show and I wanted to keep a lot of white space. I thought of using a pale green color but quickly decided to go with my favorite green, Mossy Meadow. I paired it with Baked Brown Sugar as I love the warm caramel color with the rich green. I pulled together all of the elements and studied the card. I so wanted to do something to all of that white space - move the sentiment to the bottom right, embossed it, sponge it, splatter it, just do something. I resisted but it may continue to haunt me :). Actually this is just what I set out to do and it's growing on me.
