Flower photos and cards

I have been interested in photography for a good number of years now and although I am not an expert I do really enjoy taking photos, especially close up flower shots and landscapes.  I'm hopeless with portraits to the point that my friends and family usually turn away when I appear with the camera!! I have only recently been utlising my flower photos with card making and it seems to work quite well. 

This is my latest card made with one of my photos. 

Made with white card, matted with pink paper, then Me To You, Especially for You embossing folder in white.  I then mounted my photo on to white card and added heart shaped gems and sentiment.

This is the original photo taken in a makeshift light box.  I then manipulated it with photoshop as below which I trimmed to fit on the card:

This is another card I have made with my flower photos but I can't seem to find the original. 

This I made with cream card, floral backing paper, spellbinders nestie (I love this shape) and a smaller nestie with the sentiment.  Then added border, ribbon and candi.

Hope to blog again at the weekend.  Back to work tomorrow.  xxx
