Guess what? This photo was taken at gone 10pm, without a flash!  It was my birthday last week and my partner's mum gave some money, and with it I bought a daylight lamp. It's great!

For this card I used an image from Joanna Sheen (Fashion Boutique) CD. I've used this CD a lot, yet I got it for a few quid on Ebay. The background paper is one I created previously, using a My Craft Studio image of blossom and the Docrafts Digital Designer papermaking facility.  To these I added pearls, lace and a flower.

I'd like to enter this for:

Hi Marina. I love this image - I haven't seen it for a while.
I mustn't give too much away but I can say you will be safe next week from lace and pearls.
Thank you for joining in with us.

A beautiful card Marina. I always liked this image, so vintage and pretty. Your backing paper is a great match too. I too have just bought a daylight lamp but didn't think to take photos using it! The light is so bad most of the time and I battle to take good photos of my cards, now I know what to do! Michelle x
