Your Fern's wing patterns reminds me a lot of my departed Tito and he was a greywing opaline. So I'm inclined to say your Fern is a greywing opaline too.

You can see him here.

Such pretty wings they are too The only reason I questioned her being greywing is that all my other greywings are so much paler than Ferny, she's almost as bright a green as my normal light greens.

From what I gather from both my Tito and Tito Junior is that their colour, which is light green (no dark factors) get a neon light fluorescent light greenish/yellowish tinge due to them being greywings. The normal light greens don't have that colour. I have never had a full bodied greywing in my flock, I'm not even sure If I ever seen/identified one in real life.
I'm nowhere near being a mutation expert, so hopefully someone with a better understanding will be able to help you out.

I understand, like sort of a yellowish sheen over the body that would normally just be green? I think Full-bodied Greywings are just a combination of Clearwing and Greywing but I'm not positive on that.

I'm happy if she's a brighter than normal Greywing, just trying to get the full picture before I decide who to pair her with

Hello, my closest guess would be - light green diluteor greywing (body color is washed, so it can't be clearwing, also patches are not violet), also she could be split to opaline or spangle verity, depends on her parents and grandparents, that's the beauty of clearwing/greywing/dilute verities
Very Cute Birdie

i think she is a light greywing because clearwings generally dont have any markings on their feathers..but your bird has some..although it is light in nature

Looks like a light green opaline greywing to me

Thanks for clearing that up everyone!

Still doesn't solve the problem of who to pair her with though, really light on all dilute varieties after losing Bower and Quiche

What options do you have?
I just started breeding clearwings, and spent some good amount of time reading the web sites, so with CW/GW/Dilute variety, people DON’T recommend breeding with cinnamon or split to cinnamon, because it will wash out body color completely (unless you want pure dilutes). The best option is breed to would be back to CW/GW /Dilute that way you will keep the beauty of clear wings.
I have exactly the same colored cock, I just placed him in breeding cage with CW Cobalt hen, in couple of days (fingers crossed) I will have first egg, cuz I saw them mating and + 18 days hopefully first baby, so probably in a month I can tell you what you can get out of this combo 
