Kid's birthday card that features an embossed background

For this kid's birthday card - part of a set I am making for my daughter - I decided to use embossed rectangles for my background like I did for these Christmas cards and these ones too!  I started by lengthening my card using a rectangle of green which I positioned over a piece of double sided tape which I positioned on the very edge of my card front and then trimming it to the edge of my card.  I embossed some rectangles with the circles and glued them in place on my card front leaving a gap for my greeting.  I watercoloured my image, layered it onto brown and adhered it to my card front using 3D foam tape.  I flagged the ends of my laser printed greeting and then added texture with my tracing wheel before adhering it to my card front between the background and the green strip on the bottom.  I added a few lines of texture to the green strip as well.
