Sometimes the image you are using is striking enough that you don't need any additional layering, coloring, or do-dads. Dotty The Bird is like that. Here I simple worked with some rich colors and silky ribbon to emphasize the image embossed in gold. I love it. A very simple yet striking card that can work for a lot of different occasions.
