I think you'll perhaps need to enlarge the photo to see the background text and the embossing on the right edge.
The text paper is from the Chocolate Mix, of course. Spring Rain cs was put through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. The embossing along the right edge of the Chocolate paper was done with the new little Scor-Pal thingy- that's the first time I played with it!
Butterflies in the Chocolate paper were colored with a B21 Copic, and one was cut out for the sentiment layer. Spring Rain Twill ribbon finishes it off!
So, when I see my own cards, and knowing that I have to conserve $ and layers and embellies, my cards have much more of a flat look to them than others- what's up with that?? Eye of the beholder? Not enough color variation? It's true when I sit down I can't afford time wise to spend too much time per card, so maybe that's it? Maybe the photographs just make them look much more one dimensional than they really are!
