Too Dark, Too Bright...ugh!

The card that I made yesterday was difficult to photograph. It looks great if you click on it for the enlarged version, but it looks too light to me in the regular blog post. This card has been giving me the same trouble. I have taken photographs of it inside in two different areas and outside in two different areas for a grand total of 43 different shots...ugh!! Unfortunately, this is the best one...lol! Maybe if you click and get the larger version, it will look even better. Okay, enough of my photography woes...onto the card.

I made this one for this week's Blogger's Challenge...use dies or punches. I went with both. My Stampin' Up sentiment is punched out with my small oval punch and then mounted with dimensionals to a larger oval of Pacific Point card stock. My little mouse from Stampavie is back and this time he's resting on a cupcake instead of a flower. Still cute as can be though! I used my rectangle dies from Nestabilities to cut him out along with the scalloped rectangle die for the Pacific Point layer. The buttons are from Making Memories and the fun papers are from Debbie Mums' Baby Boy pack. I used Anna Wight's sewing wheel trick around the edge of the card and then added Star Dust Stickles for some sparkle.

I'm sure the Ladies from the Blogger's Challenge group have some wonderful ideas with dies and punches. You can check out what they've all come up with right here. Have a fabulous Friday! Thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles! :D

I often struggle to get a good photo, too...even when I do the same thing and get a good photo!

CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!!! - Oh this is so precious. It looks great in the larger version.

I know what you mean about some cards being hard to photograph as I've had that same problem quite often - frustrating to say the least.
