Learning about lighting

Not sure if you've noticed from my last few posts, but I've been tinkering with the lighting in my photos, thanks to Lisa Spangler's awesome tutorial! Well, I decided to post a couple of pictures from another card I made for Dawn's Raspberry Challenge#9 and Lisa's Scribble This! Card and Photo challenge:Here are the cards...First let's start with the original card... and this is the card adjusted for lighting below.
By playing with the Lighting and Levels settings in Photoshop Elements, I was able to make this card perk up a little. Lisa's techniques showed me how to take the "gray" out of the cards, and I've learned a lot about brightening my blog photos! Her tutorial is AWESOME! Hope I've "exposed" you to a fun new blog to visit (pun intended - heehee!) Thanks for coming by!

Looking at this card again, is that a grass die or did you free-hand?
