Nature Silhouettes Get Well

While I had this set still on my project table I created a get well card for a co-worker.  I can't decide which color I like better.  What do you think? 

I used the same technique as my previous card using my Linen background stamp.  I stamped the Old Olive paper numerous times with Always Artichoke to give it texture.

Next, I cut a Spellbinders Classic Circle from Shimmery White and stamped the Nature Silhouettes in StazOn Black.  I sponged the sky in So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie & Really Rust.  The grass was sponged in Old Olive.  I layered this circle onto a Basic Black circle.

The sentiment by JustRite was stamped in Distressed Black Soot.  Before assembling the card I distressed the edges of the Barely Banana paper and added black brads.

I hope you are having a great week!

Lovely. A different feeling with only the tree/wolf the same.

Donna,
Both cards are great. Te blue reminds me of night while the green says "sunrise" to me.

Hello Donna,

Both are great, but blue is my favourite. We can hear them howling in the evening at my mom and dad's. Wolves are in the border (blue) of our son's bedroom.

I can see why you are having trouble deciding. These are both gorgeous! I'm partial to the green but that could be because I saw it first on the post. You can't go wrong with either one. Lovely.

Both cards are stunning. It's always amazing to me how color can create such different atmospheres for an image.
