70s inspired retro



A friend of mine has been fighting a nasty cold for a while now, and I thought I'd make this card to cheer her up!
Brown, orange, pink, and green can be so 70s inspiring, so this has a bit of retro feel to it, don't you think?

Everything is PTI except the butterfly (a random sticker from K & Company). Using white e.p. I heat embossed the large stem/leaf image multiple times on green and then layered it with orange. Seeing it now, I think it would have looked better layered with pink instead, but oh well.

Sorry for the brevity...I'm not feeling talkative!

Thanks for stopping by, TGIF

Dana, this is gorgeous! Your embossing came out beautifully... mine never seems to be this "clean". When I first opened the page, I thought "I don't remember that pattern in the Turning a New Leaf pp pad" lol.
