Sewing gives me a headache

Me and my sewing machine have a hate - hate relationship. Actually, I think what the problem is, is that I'm determined to prove I'm smarter than the machine and it is determined to prove I'm not. LOL But that's a whole other rant that I may need to reserve for another day.

I'm a little disappointed with how this card photographed. It is loaded with sparkle. The white paper is cryogen white which has a shimmer, the insects and the water have stickles on them and I sprayed the whole card with Shimmerz. I think it is time to invest in a photo tent.

This card is loaded up with challenges. I was challenge hopping before I made this card so it gave me lots of great ideas. Here they are in no particular order:

Stamp with Fun - for the sketch
Totally Gorjuss - the theme is Aqua
A Pocket Full of Posies - All That Glitters
Scrappy Frog - A Stitch in Time
Fun 'n' Funky - Flower Power
Stamp and Create - is also flowers
City Crafter - Isn't she lovely?
Everybody Art - In The Garden
Color Me Creative - Create some green Grass

This is really gorgeous ... know what you mean about photos though ... sometimes it is so disheartening when so much effort has been put into something..
Thanks for playing along with us at CCCB have a good day

Your card is beautiful! I LOVE Sarah Kay and this is one of my favorite images. LOL I'm with you on the "it's time to get a light tent" decision. I can't get my cards to show the sparklies and correct colors either. Congrats on you Spotlight at CCCB!
