A little friend !

It's that time of the week again. Fairy Fun Fridays has made yet another appearance this week. Funny how this challenge always happens on Fridays!! HAHA! For my creation, which is themed "Buttons & Brads", I have chosen an image from the Prairie Fairy store, called A little friend. This was a freebie up on the Fairy's Paper Craft Planet sight last week and congrats to those of you who were lucky enough to snap it up!
I have taken a couple different pictures this week. With & without flash (10 pm). I always post the darker (without flash) but am looking for some input. What do I do to enhance my picture taking ability? Remember I am doing all this at my dining room table. No artsy, fartsy stuff here!

I must admit that I prefer the darker (softer look). What do u think?

I am also entering this card in Delightful Sketches Challenge (Sketch), Cute Card Thursday (Metal Mania), & Your Next Stamp Challenge (Spring Colors)
I colored my little friend with markers and watercolor pencil crayons, Hodge Podge Hardware is used to enhance the sentiment and hang on the ribbon (which is misc), papers are a mix of CTMH and misc. Brads and buttons are from CTMH and are my favourite color pieces (semi spring/fall/earthy). Sentiment is from Stampin up! Let's not forget the faux stitching on the side!


Good Kardma by Jules said...

Love those colors and the layout! The faux stitching really adds to the card - I'll have to remember to do that.

I like the 2nd picture better than the one with flash. You can really make your pics better by using editing software. I use Picasa which is FREE and easy to figure out. You can download it at

Of the two pics Corry I prefer the one without the flash. Have you tried different settings on your digital camera, how about the plant one for details? Just a thought.

Awesome job on putting your card together.

PS I'm another Picasa user. It's so easy to use, and you can edit your photo lighter or darker and sharpen it.
