I did several things to the dark green part of the card. I used Always Artichoke cs and did direct to paper inking with the same colored ink. Then after it dried I stamped it with the SU Canvas background stamp in Always Artichoke ink, as well. Then I stamped in the lower right corner with a word stamp from the old SU Botanicals set.
I used the Ornare paper piercing plate and added some ornate curly q's to the corners. I also did some paper piercing around the "Thanks" embellishment. The bee is also from Botanicals.
I used Copics for the coloring and a white gel pen to emphasize the flower centers.
Thanks for looking!
