Instead of using patterned paper, I used a photo from my trip to the Caribbean. If I remember correctly, this is a beautiful stream in Dominica that we passed on our way to a striking waterfall & swimming hole.
I love this card & I'm going to pull more photos from my trips to use as backgrounds. They add so much to it with variations in color, natural beauty & just interest.
