OWH MWT & Sketch #157

To start off with I finally set up my photo box for taking pictures of my card based on the OWH better photos tutorial (Link Here ) I'm so glad I did. I am so pleased with how my cards finally jump off the web page. The details show beautifully too! Now I need to make one a little bigger to fit my 12 x 12 scrapbook pages.

This is the card sketch for the week. I simplified my version. The sketch called for so many littler pieces and I used strips. I took my time to add a few details. I decided to use the last 6 inches of the velvet ribbon. In person the texture is so cool. Still using my scrap stash from making my own 6x6 paper pads

For this weeks MWT they are looking for birthday cards. I tried to add as many elements as I could. I almost felt a little like Sandy who couldn't stop embellishing! lol

I made a lightbox too and it really helps my photos. Your cards are just great.

I followed the same really does help even out the lighting so the cards stay true to color. Glad to see others are having success with it. Your cards look great and not too embellished (can there ever be such a thing?) Great work.

That first card it adorable; great job with the sketch. I like all those background papers together. Your birthday card really stands out with that pink sentiment.
