Breast Cancer Awareness

Here is my card for Breast Cancer Awareness month. I have used one of the Pink Petticoat images (she's NOT BELLA!!) LOL!! The background paper that I used at the bottom of the card is from the Artylicious Damask Delights CD from Graphicus. Every single design on this CD (and all the others) are a delight to behold. If you haven't used CD's before then you must check out all the Artylicious CD's by Glenda - you won't be able to choose you will want them all - I did!! LOL..

The frill is from my local haberdashery shop - years old!! This is also the first card I have shot using my mini macro studio that I made thanks to a link sent to me by Renee from Stamping for Sanity. Thanks Renee!! For any of you who are having trouble photographing your cards so that they look their best, then hop on over to Strobist. It is a blog by a very good photographer who wants to share their wisdom on the advantage of taking photos with good light. This particular tutorial that I have linked is for making the under $10 'studio'.

I have tried both using the box outside in natural light and inside with the help of a desk lamp, and whilst I am not 100% happy with them just yet (they still keep coming out lop-sided for some reason!), I can honestly say, I am much happier with my photos now than I was when I first started blogging. So progress has been made! I would be interested to know which photo my fellow bloggers prefer - so if you'd like to leave me a comment I would be grateful!! Is it number 1 (at the top) or number 2 (at the bottom).
Thanks for stopping by!

Love the pink petticoat image! I think I like the lighting on number 2 a bit better, but I like the angle on number 1. Thanks for the photography link as well. I'm going to check it out. :-)
