Feminine Roots

Hi Stampers!  Hope your summer is going well.   I was dying to make a card with my new Rooted in Nature bundle, and I had to make a card for a female friend who likes green.  I decided to see if I could get it to work.  Here is the result.  I started by stamping leaves in soft colors (Soft Sea Foam, Gorgeous Grapefruit) and then I used a Sponge Dauber to add the darker colors on the edges.  I cut a bunch out and started placing them behind that wood piece, on top of a panel of Wood Textures dsp*.  The wood stump was stamped in Crumb Cake and edged with Early Espresso for the bark.  I decided it needed more color so I cut two Celebrate pieces in Gorgeous Grapefruit.  They were glued on top of one another for more dimension.  I kept searching for something to add to the layers, and finally found these flowers which were a freebie from a Paper Pumpkin a few months ago.  I never realized they were white on the back!  A tiny pearl from the Share What You Love suite was added to the top of each flower.  I think it makes it a bit tropical, don't you?  Anyway, let me know what you think.  Did I manage to make Rooted feminine? Let me know if you have questions.  Thanks for stopping by!
