Esther, your project is beautifully done! Thanks for the tip on the homemade diffuser. I purchased a few but if I know how to make them I can customize my projects. Love how you used our color chart and the green creates perfect tension. Thanks so much for sharing with us at A Place To Start!

You did a fabulous job with this, I love this technique for a more thinner card, great masculine and rustic feel to it, thanks for the tutorial!

Hi Esther! This is such a well-designed card! I really like the wood embossed background with the simple imagery and color palette. Everything works so well together and it has a wood etching quality to it! Really nice!
