Tilda and Butterflies

I was ready to make a Mother's day card for the Sugar Bowl when my Magnolia Spring Kit dropped through the letterbox, so it was all stop and EZ mount them and start stamping. I love this Tilda not sure if the Butterfly would really stay in her hand while running down the road. The papers are My Minds Eye which were leftover from a pack that I brought to Scrapbook J my Gt Nephew. I've used Carole's sketch on Friday sketchers but I turned it upside which worked better so I could show off the butterflies.

Nicole has asked if I use a light box to take my photo's, I thought it would easier to show the Chair that I used. I use a DCWV pack with vintage colour card so if the colour doesn't work I can choose another, there is a thin piece of wood underneath because of the dip of the chair seat. My dinning room has Patio doors so the room is light and I try to take the pics in the morning because the sun (when it does shine) is shining in the room in the afternoon and its too bright then. I always take my pics of my cards with the Macro setting on my camera its the one with the flower on and because of some bizarre reason my hands shake in the mornings I use a tripod inherited from my FIL.

Then its a case of uploading the pic to the PC, crop it, stick my name on it somewhere and then I resize it so it isn't a large file after all its a card and I don't plan to print the pic. Gosh I've waffled on it a bit sorry.

Hi Debby, this is just so beautiful, what a gorgeous Tilda and butterflies! Love the paper and accents too. Great tip about the pictures...neat idea to use a DCWV pad and change the papers to match!
Off to pick up my big purchase tomorrow, wink wink! Will no doubt be back to ask you lots of questions! I did look on that link and it's very helpful, thanks. Marlene is to blame as well hehehe!
