Dried Flower Thank You

While in the floral department at ACMoore one day, I noticed that the young leaves on the eucalyptus sprays were heart-shaped.  As these leaves were treated with some sort of solution to keep them flexible and not brittle, I thought they could be put to good use on cards. 

Once again, the camera has hijacked many of the Gold dots surrounding the torn edges of the background paper which I used to visually transition between the two papers.  Eventually, some techie genius is going to find a way to photograph metallics and other glittery stuff, and I live for the day.  Meanwhile, the use of two shades of Kraft cardstock makes the sentiment stand out and the low levels of the embellishments make this one an easy mailer.  The Terra Cotta background paper was also used for the note inside, making for a nicely unified design.
