Freshly Made Script

This card took a very roundabout way to completion; in fact, the end result isn't anything at all like the "first draft."  But that's what happens in my card-making when my initial idea simply doesn't work.   For this week's Freshly Made Sketches, I went from bright red to a muted green and kraft.  The designer paper layer features printed script; the card front is embossed with script, and a die cut script "hello" was rescued from the odds and ends drawer.
