When using a busy topper, with lots of colours, it's not always so easy to pick a colour theme for the rest of the card.
I decided to go for warm orange and yellow, with a splash of gold and pale green.
The card layer, was embossed with one of my embossing folders. I would of put ribbon on it, but the topper was too large, and would of covered most of the ribbon. Ribbon is a luxury item for me, so I like to show as much of it as I can, when used.
The warm orange shade, really warms the whole card and reflects well in the topper, highlighting the browns and oranges.
The embellishment was made with a collection of cutting dies, combining a few colours, to again, reflect the colours in the topper, but also needed it to stand out from the card backing.
