Vintage Card

Hello I am back home.  This is one of the cards I made before I went on holiday intending to blog but I just could not get along with blogger on my husband's I-Pad and it was not cost-effective to pay for wi-fi on my laptop too.......anyway enough chit-chat - an 8x8 scallop edged cream card.

I have used purposely feminine papers with tones of pinks and soft greys.
I am questioning my photography skills again.  My pictures on my camera and on my computer looks great but as soon as I upload the same images to blogger they appear duller and out of any kind souls out there know what I am doing wrong?
My banner is stamped (an old one which I cannot remember the name of).  "Wish" is made with rub-on letters.   List of products used are:-
Marianne Design:- Paper RosesCreatables Ovals (LR0236), Vintage Spring Image, Fashion stamps (the mannequin, buttons and perfume bottles), Pretty  Paper Bloc.  Other products are:- Weathered wood distress ink, EK Success border punch, sentiment stamp and rub on's.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

A new challenge blog and I wanted to play along in their debut challenge so I hope I have used enough pink.

Thank you for popping by's back to work for me tomorrow and I have spent the morning doing laundry/ironing and the afternoon washing the caravan ...bushed now and I wanted to craft.  Take care everyone!  Suzanne ~x~

Suzanne - you have definitely used enough Pink! This is a gorgeous creation with a wonderful image and beautiful layout.

PS: Re. the photography - I once picked up a useful tip from a blogging friend - not to zoom in too close to the card, and it does seem to help, but having said that, my photos are sometimes far from perfect!

Suz this is gorgeous, even the girly colours which as you know is a surprise for me. Re the photography, I wonder if resizing the pics before putting them on blogger would help? Blogger automatically on mine shifts the photos down to 'medium' size, sometimes this blurs them and I just resize them smaller with pix resizer and voila they don't blur. Otherwise change the setting on the camera to a lower resolution as it could be that blogger can't cope with the resolution and blurs things. I'll stop rambling now sorry.

Hello there fellow Pink lover. Isn't it fabulous about the launch of In the Pink? I stopped in for a closer look at your card. I'm linked at #1 & #103 this week, I'd love it if you stopped by to say hello.

Hi Suzanne, very pretty card, I like the papers you've used here to create a soft background.
