So I threw away the pink umbrellas so I wouldn't fiddle with it anymore...and then I happened upon this yellow leftover scrap from another card. It matched the base card perfectly and the rest came together quickly. (well, relatively quick!)
So...here is my "recycled" base card with original ribbon and by adding new scraps, a flower and shiny button - voila, I'm much happier with these results!

Don't forget to check out the free downloadable papers from The Angel Company! Some of the gals printed the patterns out on colored paper for a really neat effect...I ended up wiping ink around the edges of my paper for a different look! The greens DO match in real life!!
