This was my first Impossible Card which uses Animal Outing and Birthday Background. I felt the ‘streamers’ from Birthday Background could look vine vines in a jungle so stamped them in Old Olive on the Old Olive card I also used the ‘speckle’ image from the same set and added it randomly to the card.
