Creative Card Crew and A Spoonful of Sugar

Good evening everyone. I hope you've all had a great day. Mine was spent dealing with a willful two year old - who is now tucked up in bed!

I've made a card to enter into two challenges. Creative Card Crew where the theme is "Ribbons" and A spoonfull of Sugar where the theme is "Hearts".

I'm trying to improve my photography, some things are getting better but some things seem to be worse - notice the "orange" flower - it is in fact pink in real life - I'm not colour blind - I promise you! In fact the flower was coloured using the same ink as Tilda's dress so I'm not sure why that isn't orange too.

Here's what I used to make this card:-

Stamps: Tilda, Flowers and Sentiment from Magnolia Summer Club kit
Colouring medium: Distress inks for Tilda and Copic Ciaos for flower background
Accessories: Anita's Ribbon, Papermania gems
Tools: Nestability Scalloped Hearts and Classic Hearts, Spellbinders Flower Creations 1, Woodware leaf punch, Scor-pal

Thank you for stopping off at my blog and thank you for your truly appreciated comments.

Lovely card Claire. I have the same probs with photos, expecially the colour - who'd believe one of my sons is a professional photographer.

Gorgeous card Clare. I love how you have stamped the image inside the heart. I know exactly what you mean about dealing with "willful" children! I've had to deal with my own willful 3 yeard old chappie this evening before bed. There must be something in the air today!! lol Lainy xx

What a pretty card Claire ... not sure what makes colours go weird with photos sometimes, but I have the same problem ... mind you with me it's probably user error LOL!
Thanks for popping by again today.
Always appreciate your kind comments :)
Hope your "kiddling" wakes up feeling more amenable tomorrow.
