The requirements of this challenge were to use stitching and buttons on a card. Pefert, says I, my SIL is having a birthday this week and she is a marvellous seamstress so I made it for Jeanne.
Naturally, after creating the card, I needed to photograph it and then post it. With all that I've learned through the digital scrapbooking courses lately, I felt that my card photos are lacking a little something, but, I could change that, so I did. I took a piece of the DP is used on the card and just photographed it all by itself. Then I used that as a background to the card. I used a filter on it so that it would soften it up. I photographed the card separately and brought it onto the the background and used a 25 pixel crop to feather the card into the background. I plan to use this method regularly as I think it makes a much more please photo to post.
