A Cabbage Thank You


I was browsing through my Better Homes and Garden magazine the other day and came across a picture of a cabbage. It was a big ol thing with all of the outer leaves bright green, and all of the inner leaves white with green on the edges. I was immediately inspired and pictured a big ol flower for a card. With that cabbage in mind to recreate, I sat down to make a card and started browsing through my favorite blogs for more inspiration. I came across Dawn McVey's Color Challenge. Her colors came from a picture of foliage she had taken. In her picture was a big ol green cabbage looking plant. Her colors were, pink, chocolate, kraft, green and vanilla. A light went off in my head. The whole cabbage thing was a match, and I had already planned on using green and vanilla, two of the colors in the challenge. Easy peasy. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the challenge. And this is what I came up with. I embossed the 'thank you' and did a little distressing on some of the pieces. Gotta love it when everything unfolds perfectly. :)
