Happy World Card Making Day!

Happy World Card Making Day my Friends!  Yay it's our favorite day of the year!  The day we celebrate our love for card making!  :>  Do you have card making fun on the agenda for today?  I do!  :>  

First I wanted to send out a big thank you for all your amazing comments on my last post where I shared the clips of Ariel and I on the tv show we did!  Thank you so much for all your love!

I have to have a card to share with you today!  :>  It's fitting because it's a thank you card:

This is one of my favorite color combos!  I stamped with white frost ink the dot flower background by Hero Arts onto the kraft cardstock.  Heat embossed with Chestnut Zing powder the Engraved Flowers by HA and colored them in with Tattered Angels spray mist!  Heat embossed the sentiment from the Good Friends set by HA in white and colored the lace with tattered angels mist too!  :>  This card is very me isn't it?

I wanted to share with you my new way of taking photos of my card, I used to take photos on a chair beside the window but now I've actually started taking photos on the window ledge when it's sunny directly on the window like this:

I layer maybe 5 pieces of white cardstock of the background (otherwise not solid enough) and one of the bottom, it's so much brighter and works so much better! I want to get a few 12 by 12 to do this so a bigger background.  I am really happy with this as it saves me some editing.  I hate editing and am not so good at it.  I took the above photo of the card like this and it looks bright, right?

Well that's it from me today!  :>  Hope you enjoy WCMD fun!
