WHAT A DIFFERENCE A COLOR MAKES
Although the difference between these two cards is subtle, the brighter green cardstock gives the card more life. I was happy with the first one, but it just looked dull. After taking off the top layer and re-mounting it on a brighter green, I was finally satisfied with it.
Unfortunately, my camera doesn't capture the glitter very well. The dark green leaves are done with Twinkling H2O's, giving them a nice sheen. The rose leaves were colored with a marker and Spica glitter pen on top, adding just a touch of glitter over the green ink. The rose center was colored yellow and toned down with Frosted Ice Stickles. If you click on the first image twice, you may be able to see more of the glimmer.
The background, green leaf and rose images were all in my file of pre-stamped images from several years ago!
