I have to admit, when I first saw the Adventure Bound stack, I was struggling for ideas. I was wondering what I could do to make this scene pop a bit more. I decided to go for a 5" x 7" card, which allowed me to use the entire panel. Under high magnification, I was able to pick out the small bits of faded green and highlight them with the flower soft, which is much more muted that the photo. I love adding layers to my cards, but I really think that the embossed, white phrase, done directly on the paper, added a bit of balance for the awesome butterfly. I like the reversal of adding a second butterfly for white highlighting, rather than a shadow, which reflects the forest scene beautifully.
