I created my card very simply.  It's a lot of embossing and a lot of layers.  I used a partial sentiment and the two ducks from the new Duck Hunting set.  I needed some scenery for them to fly over, so I borrowed some cattails from a set called Marsh Silhouettes.  I embossed all my images and then layered the green and white with some brown.  I drew my inspiration from a button I found for Ducks Unlimited.
I think it's pretty clear to see how I came about my design, even if I didn't have the exact same green color.
 
Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to keep going on the hop.  Next, you will visit Sue!
