Brighter Days



Boy did I struggle with photographing this card today.  I could not get a good result using my little light tent and even after playing with it in Photoshop I still couldn't get it to look right - it was very lilac!  I finally broke down and took a picture in my kitchen.  Despite the photo issues I had fun putting it together and I'm going to enter it in the current CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.  I managed to mix and match dies from 4 different companies and used a fifth for the sentiment.  I love it when crafty goodies play so nicely together!  :)    



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Pumpkin Pie, Hello Honey, Soft Sky, Smokey Slate, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from The Birds & The Bees) WPlus9
Ink: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Small & large suns) Lil' Inker Designs, (Cloud base) Mama Elephant, (Small cloud) Paper Smooches, (Large cloud) Papertrey Ink
Gems:  Recollections

I absolutely LOVE your take on the sketch! Awesome! I know what you mean about photos. Sometimes they come out great and other times not so great. I don't think this one looks bad though. :)

Ah, that familiar frustration when a card just won't behave in front of the camera. Must be like having kids. :D What an awesome card! Perfect mix of dies and a sweet sentiment.
