New Baby



Hey everybody.  Hope everyone is doing great this Tuesday.  I've completed another card, and this one I made for one of my best friend's new grandbaby.  Check out that name!  I started out with the idea of making another fold card, but it just wasn't meant to be, so I opted to keep it simple.

I'm still struggling with using a camera, so I do apologize for the image lighting being so dark.  I'm working on building a light box, and I am determined to get this camera thing all figured out!  Any advice is much appreciated.





The stamp is a DDS stamp called "Sleeping Infant", and I've colored him with Promarkers.  I cut out the frame by hand (by the grace of God) with an exacto knife, and did a back stitch around it.  I made the little bow from some scrap ribbon.  The papers (which weren't that great to work with) came from good ole Walmart.  They're from Colorbok, and have a texture, although you probably can't see it from this image.  The sentiment (from scrapbook.com/quotes) - I made in Paint Shop Pro, and is on the inside of the card.  I tried to get a shot of it with the camera, but for some reason, the image kept getting this fluoresent shadow/glow "thing" in it and looked terrible.  So I had to settle for showing you the finished .jpg

I have entered this card into the following challenges:

This is such a sweet card, colored so beautifully. Wow, that was a super job with the handcutting. Mine never turn out that well! I was also intrigued by your comment about camera difficulties, as this is one of my weak points. Not very good at photographing my cards, scanner doesn't give a 'true' color either. I'm new to blogging (Mar, 2012) so learning many things at once. I'm joining as a follower, (found you at Outlawz), and invite you to visit me when you have time. Looking forward to enjoying your creations and blogs! Thanks for sharing.
