 I thought it would be fun to use the Forever Greenery DSP with this stamp set.

This one I CASEd from Jacque Williams. She used the Boho Indigo paper on her card. I didn't have that so I used the In Good Taste DSP.

This was the card I originally was going to demonstrate.  But I didn't think the HB really made sense. So I played some more and came up with the card above.  I like that one much better!
