Happy Birthday Natalie!

Here with a card for my sister Natalie's birthday.  I used the lovely "Shabby Tea Room Week #148 - Elegance" for inspiration.  Here is the inspiration photo:

I have a new light tent that I ordered as a present for myself this past holiday season.  I posted two photos today.  Both were taken using the light tent.  The first (with the heart tag outside of the heart pocket from Memory Box) is clearer and crisper and has been adjusted in my photo software which in my opinion makes the colors show darker than they are in real life.  The second one has been left mostly unadjusted and is more true to the color the card actually is - ie: aqua mist and vintage cream card stock colors.  However it also is not as crisp and clear in my opinion.  Just curious which one you like better?  I am playing around with lighting and trying to take better quality photos as it is one of the most difficult things for me in our dark and rainy climate.  I think perhaps somewhere in between the two pictures both color and clarity wise?  What do you think?

Thanks for taking a look at my card!

NOTE:  There was a problem with my card pictures showing on this blogpost for a day after I originally posted it.   Thanks to Deb and Marybeth for letting me know!!!  I finally got the problem fixed at 5:20pm on 1/11/13.  If you visited while the picture was not visible I apologize.  :)


  1. Hey Jill I don't see the photo. Is it that thing where you have to buy more space for your photos I went through that too! By the way my second daughter's name is Natalie

    1. Deb - Finally got the problem fixed. It is a problem with loading photos only in Internet Explorer. When I switched to Firefox it all worked fine. It is strange that I could see the photo on my posts though...computers can be so confusing!!!
      LOL!! Thanks again for your helpful emails today!!

  3. Jill, this is just gorgeous!!! All of the blue and that vintage look is simply amazing.

  4. Ok I see it and your card is beautiful ! I kinda like the first photo. It just seems a bit crisper. My husband got me a wonderful tent lights and all . It was a thoughtful gift . I could not get the picture to work for the life of me. I took it back . I am very bad ....because I do that. I hope you have great luck with yours.
    Love the doily and heart pocket on this gorgeous card!

  5. Yeah! I'm so glad you got your photos to load, Jill, because this project is a pure delight!! Just so pretty ... thanks for joining us this week in the Tea Room :)

  6. Beautiful card Jill.....the heart pocket and tag look fabulous. Very pretty colours so soft and elegant. Thanks for joining us in the Tea room!

  7. LOVE all the layers and the YUMMINESS of your card, Jill! GORGEOUS heart pocket! LOVE how you also showed the heart out of the pocket, too! Just Stunning!
