I made a mess of my example jar of flowers card. I am not sure I am brave enough to to post it here.

I have a couple of backgrounds left from a crop in November where I made up a big collection of sponged backgrounds. I made this one for a masculine card. I just liked the blue to brown. For that crop I did not have my stash of woodland bits to try with it. I was pleasantly surprised when I put a prepped framed birch trees on this background and it went perfectly.
