A layout and a color scheme
Thanks to a GED preparation book I had a new layout and a color combination that I wouldn't ordinarily use. I spent way more time on this layout that it deserved and I found that without the white text it was difficult to get a balance. When it's time to use the card, I think I'll try adding some sort of white at the bottom of the green panel. It may be in the form of a banner or maybe stamped and white embossed directly. I'll go with what seems right at the time. While it wasn't as successful an experiment as I hoped, it's still a good design and I stepped outside my box.
