New Greeting Card






















Pictured above is the image for my latest greeting card. I had to take a lot of photos to find some decent light. This was taken outdoors under the huge pine tree in front of my house. I love the way the sunlight filters through the branches. I may have to try for another shot under different lighting (maybe early in the morning) as I'm not sure this image is clear enough. I'll have to get Wal-Mart to print it out for me and see how it looks against some really cool cardstock that I recently purchased.




















The silhouette floral is from some fabric I bought a while ago. I have almost finished an A-line four gore skirt out of this fabric with just the waistband and hem to do. Instead of lining the skirt, I am going to make a half slip/petticoat with a black ruffle. I'm looking forward to sharing that with you in a couple of days. I am targeting to get it all done by the weekend.

I think it really adds to the feel of the card, the way that the shadows fall...It's nice how these things work out sometimes, isn't it?
