Do you prefer “stepped up” cards??

Welcome to Makeover Monday!!

Easter card created with Stampin' Up's, Springtime Joy stamp set. #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, #Easter crafts, #Handmade cards, #Makeover Monday

When crafting, I tend to prefer to add different elements and layers.  In my opinion, I believe a card or project looks finished with a little bit of detail.  What do you think?

For today’s Makeover Monday card, I did just that.  I added a little more color, and some rhinestones.  The silver sprig is from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper pack.  (It is on the Last Chance list).  I turned it over and embossed that back side with Silver Embossing Powder.
