This card came together really quickly thanks to the Expressions in Ink Designer Paper. I wanted the Otter to look like he was floating in the water and this paper was perfect! I pulled the Soft Sea Foam and the Just Jade colors from the paper and then added a pop of color using Pumpkin Pie. If this color combination doesn’t appeal to you, you can find a myriad of other colors in my Color Combination Library. 😀
