It's perfect isn't it? I used the colors from the inspiration photo when I colored it, and found papers that also had the inspiration photo colors. It's hard to see the designs on the papers. The bottom paper is a wood grain print and the one above it is tiny trees. They are mostly in shades of greens and aquas. For some visual interest there are three strips of different prints with more colors crossing near the bottom of the card, they have the divine twine wrapped around them. To make the card pop I used a bright pink thread for the machine stitching as well as pink bling and a pink sentiment.
