Hexagons and Flowers in shades of grey

I'm not happy with the quality of the photo - I've tried to take photos inside and outdoors, during daylight and in the evening, without further success. This seems to happen every time I use green papers...

I've only used one stamp, for the sentiment, from a set of Kanban stamps. The label is made using a die - I've added two green rhinestones to it.
I've also used dies to make the hexagons, the smallest flower and the leaves. I've used two brads, for the center of the largest flowers, but for the smallest one I've used some pearl straws.

The patterned papers, from Panduro, are in different shades of greys, and for the card base I've used green and grey paper.

I enter this card into the following challenges:
1) Craft Your Days Away - #50 Shades of Grey and one other (green)
2) Kaboodle Doodles - What's In (hexagons)
3) Come and Get It Challenges - BINGO (Gems + Die cuts + Flowers)
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Hello my friend, great card. Love the hexagon shapes and the layout you have used! A great card for our Bingo challenge at Come and Get It. With the photos, maybe it is the camera setting? But I understand your frustration. Regards Meighan
