Enjoy a photograph

I am so enjoying the inspiration I am finding at 365 Cards. This is my take on the sketch from day 155. By now, if you've been looking at my cards over the past few days, you'll notice that I haven't yet cleaned off my table -- and so, many of my cards are being made with similar supplies. Tomorrow will be the big clean up day ... and then I'll start fresh, I think!
Supplies: by CTMH - Say it in style stamp set, stitched ribbon, clear sparkles. by Fiskars - border punch, SU word window punch & ticket corner punch. Everything else is unknown and old from the stash.

This is a picture that I took while we were in Georgia. I was testing my new lens for its macro capabilities and the flowers in Nana's garden were great subjects. I liked the detail in this one, so I added text to it in PhotoShop. (I'm not well versed in PhotoShop, and I wish I had time to take a class on how to use it.) So, the flower itself is as the photographer (me) took it - no changing color saturation (whatever that means) or photo editing ... except for adding the text. I was looking for a pretty Biblical verse about plants - but got tired of searching, so I settled for this. What do you think?


  1. Wow! Your card and photo are beautiful. The photo would make a great card, too!

  2. It's a beautiful card, and a beautiful photo! The flower is just so vibrant! The saying is perfect!

  3. I LOVE this card! Great layering... I'm totally diggin' the asymmetrical design!

  4. Absolutely a-dore your take on the sunday sketch!!! Gorgeous! Lovely pic too :)
