You "bake" me happy!!!

I am so excited to share this card with you today I created for my hubby for his birthday. I am loving this card, I am not sure what it is but I am in love with this card. I really don't think the camera did it justice!!

This weekend I went to a photography class with my cousin we had a great time but we felt we did not learn anything. I am excited though we get to go again at the end of August with different teaches, hopefully that will help.  I want to take beautiful pictures like some of you other girls, your pictures look so clean when you photograph your cards! So if you have some tips let me know! I know for sure I need more light but not sure how to get it.

Light boxes or tents do wonders for pictures. You can find some fairly cheap ones that come with lights on amazon or ebay. HTH

Great card...I always take my card pics outside on a plain piece of white paper. I take the pic really close up set on micro...usually without a flash. it's better to take the pic when the sun is high so there are no shadows. Lee-Ann :)

Cristin don't know how you did it but it's cute and manly at the same time. I struggle with photos too. I have been taking some pictures outside with my flower garden in the background when I can. Think the natural light makes a big difference.

I don't blame you for loving this card, it's so great! I love the details even on the little candle :) I always try to photo my cards with a white flat surface and a white wall behind it (since I dont own a lightbox or anything) good luck!
