Business Cards

I've been playing with my business card design, and I'm pretty sure I have my layout.  Now, I'm trying to decide what shade of green I want to use: a spring green, or sage green?  Here are the options, what do you think?

Spring Green

Sage Green

The difference isn't so drastic when they're printed.  I favor the brighter green, but Brandon likes the sage.  I want to be consistent in my colors, so whatever I use here will also be used in my Etsy shop, price tags, mailing labels, everything.  Decisions, decisions.

to me the sage is more sophisticated. The card layout is awesome!

spring green fo sho. the contrast is better, more catchy... pretty, and other nice adjectives =]

Have you tried combining the colors. I think it would look good if the emblem was different than the border. It would make the emblem pop.

hmmmm yeah at least try what your momma said. If that's not it, I lean towards the first one.

I say go with your gut. I think the brighter green makes it pop. So, I vote Spring Green! :)
Like the pics of the flowers too!

I'm digging my mom's suggestion too. I tried it, and it looks good. We'll see what it looks like printed. Thanks guys. :)

Spring green... but I like things bright. And I totally agree with momma two colors. I might add some color to the All Wound Up as well just to make the name pop from the rest of the writing. And add color to the small beads instead of the grey... if that makes sense. Love seeing what your doing with the logo!

I favor the sage green, but I think that you should go with the spring green. This is your business, and you are the one that it represents, not to mention you're the one who will be looking at it every day. You just posted about how much you love spring because of the colors and how it makes you feel alive. I think that's your answer right there. :) xoxo Carrie
