Birthday card featuring a digital image of leaves, a sanded embossed layer and a laser printed greeting

I modified a card kit from the January card class to make this card.  It had a heart as an embellishment which did work really well for the cards I was making for my friend so I changed things up a bit.  I used the gray card and the purple embossed and sanded layer.  I chose this leafy garland image (Anne's Cards4U) from my image stash and trimmed it down some before watercolouring it.    I layered a piece of yellow cardstock on the left hand side and then added a green strip next to it which spanned the width of the card.  I trimmed it even with the background at the top and flagged the bottom edge.  I adhered this layer to the background leaving the lower part of the strip free as I wanted to tuck my little laser printed greeting under it.  I flagged the end of the greeting and tucked it under the strip and then glued down all the pieces.  I adhered this large element to the front of my gray card!!  I thought that my image needed a bit of something so I added little bits of clear glitter with a gel marker on the leaves and most of the dots.  That was better!!         Therese
