Hippie Birthday Card

Hello everyone! Birthday card time!
A friend of mine is a nature girl. She likes greens and browns so I kept her in mind when designing this card.

I incorporated a wood-grained deep brown mat and a textured tan mat for that woodsy feeling. For the colorful embossed flowers on the front, I used white cardstock, a Darice embossing folder and 4 colors of ink that I allowed to smudge together as I went. I didn't do a lot of embellishing so the colors and patterns are front and center on this one. To make the large green flowers on the base card I used an old paper that I had punched flowers out of as a stencil.
