PDCC40 - Splash of Green

This week's challenge over at the Play Date Cafe is a Splash of Colour challenge which basically means a black and white card with a hint of colour, and this time around it's green! Here is the sample photo you will find on their site:

Here is what I came up with for the challenge and getting a good picture seemed to be a challenge in itself! I'll blame it on the ho-hum lighting in my art room instead of the photographer this time around :)

The paper is from Stampin' Up! and mostly everything else with the exception of the stickers, rhinestones and stick pins. It's hard to tell in the picture but the rhinestones are peridot. I think the sticker letters wouldn't focus that well because of the white ink I stamped in behind them. I made the sticks pins by taking a pin and gluing a white freshwater pearl to the ends. Here is a close up of the pins:
