Ballerina Marci

Happy Sunday, my friends! Here is a card that I made for La La Land Crafts.


I used the adorable Ballerina Marci for my card. I used the digital version. See all the stamps in digi form here.


I paired her with My Mind's Eye's lovely Fine And Dandy Tickled Pink collection. The cute banner is from the Jane's Bakery set by Jane's Doodles and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Sorry that my photo lighting has been inconsistent lately due to the gloomy days we are having. It also makes it difficult for editing afterwards. Since I don't have a photo tent, I rely heavily on natural light. Here is how I photograph my cards:


Yep. Three pieces of luxurious white cardstock. If you have to know, two of them are from Bazzill Basics and the other one is from The Paper Company. The vertical ones are propped up on tissue boxes with the daylight coming from the window on the right hand side. There you have it, my make-do photo shoot setting. =)

That's all for today. Hope you have a lovely day! =)



Thanks for stopping by!

Ballerina Marci is SO cute I just want to hug her! Your colouring is superb and I photograph just like you, with white cardstock and relying heavily on natural light. Wintertime is bad for that, isn't it? Not to worry, your photos are still beautiful! :)
