Snail&co

I have been using a lot of the stamps from the snail&co stamp set, but not the snail.  I decided it was the snail's turn.
I was inspired by a number of cards that I've seen lately using kraft cardstock and a white focal point, where the image runs off the white onto the kraft.  I thought it might work just as well with green. I paper-pieced the snail (it was either that or masking), and added little punched flowers to pick up the orange color and a white ribbon to pick up the white.  It was surprisingly quick to put together.  I made this using the sketch this week at Blessings Ink. and am entering it in the following challenges:
