So I simplified the design to the key elements I loved...the green niche and the sentiment. And here's what happened.:
How-To Tips: First, I cut a window into the layering panel using a craft knife and quilting ruler. To position the window, I cut a post-it note to fit the stamp and positioned the post-it with even borders on the top and left edges of the layering panel. Then, using the quilting ruler, I cut two edges at a time around the post-it.
Then, using light pencil marks, I marked the corners of the window on the card base and masked off a slightly larger area with more post-its to sponge with SU's Green Galore ink. I could have used a green galore base instead of sponging but decided I wanted white-on-white layering because that's just more "me."
And that's a big part of getting inspired by stuff: making it your own. If you get a chance this weekend, why not peruse Pinterest and see if you can get inspired by a beautiful home decor picture and make a card with your own style. It's fun!
