I really like your illustration Manniedex. I wonder if you've tried it on a brown shirt? For me it'd have more energy without the box.

Nice design!

OR EVEN A CRANBERRY SHIRT, THAT WOULD MAKE THE GREEN REALLY POP

This really captures the magic of nature for me. I like the contrast between the image in the box and the green shirt. I want one!

If you take this not just as "plant life is magical" but that the person whose hand that is, is "magically making the plant grow from nothing but a handful of dirt in his hand" - that certainly applies to theme!

Kinda what I was thinking, too. Thanks for your defense! Oh well; there's always next week. :-)

Thank you! I played with the shirt color a lot and went back and forth but ultimately the green evoked the natural feeling I was going for best. Without the box, the hand is disembodied. Also, I thought the terra cotta color unified the image really well and allowed me to increase the emphasis on the sprout by picking up that color on the shirt, as well.
