I learned something from my first 2 cards -- if the background is very colorful, then black and white images work best in the foreground. I flipped this for these next cards. I painted the backgrounds 3 shades of grey (not 50!) Then I used color in the foreground.
I like the double meaning of "on pins & needles" -- sewing and waiting. The lady in green might be waiting for a dozen roses -- or a nice new dress!
