Lightbulb Cards made with your own photos

So many photographs in this forum's challenge threads would make wonderful cards. Have any of you done that with your own photos from the challenges? Today I uploaded one from challenge #48: Sunrise Photo Card by Crafts. Any others?

[ETA: Your photo card examples don't need to be made with only challenge photos.]

Hmm, I often use photos on cards, but I'm not sure if I've ever used a challenge photo on one. I'd have to look back at what I have used.

Since I'm interested in seeing photo card layout ideas, I guess I shouldn't have limited it to only challenge photos. I'll go back and edit my first post here.

I checked out your gallery, Sabrina. You have some great examples in there. I especially like these two:

DTGD10 Seaside Postcard by Cook22
Nice understated color scheme, and the rock textures tie all the photos together. Good balance of blues, not overpowering.

TLC276 My Aunt's Garden - album pages by Cook22
Gorgeous flower photos, and they really pop against the green.

TFS.

I love using pictures on my cards because I can use a picture that will truly mean something to the person I am making it for. Here are a couple that I have made. The one with the mountains with the stamped bear is pretty much a cased card from somewhere here on SCS. They had used a beautiful stamped image but I used a photo from our mountains.

- when I noticed you'd revived the thread in the GST section, I linked a bunch in there. Not the mini album for my aunt, though. I was pleased myself with the seaside postcard one. Sadly Shirley died recently, but foxy67 now has the card.

Jill, your photos look great on those cards. Beautiful fall colors in that Thanksgiving set.

Sabrina, about your spotlight effect:
IC228 Magnolia by Cook22 .
Printing the same photo in two different scales is a neat idea. I was thinking it would also work with a sepia background and the center circle in full color.

All these photo cards are gorgeous!

I made this one a few years ago for my nephew's baptism. Used a picture of him on his actual Baptism day in b&w for the background behind the sentiment printed on vellum. It's pretty basic, but I love it because it's Jack...I mean, because it is so simple!

This was last year's Christmas card that I made using a full moon photo I had taken.

Yes, Beth, I'd love to see what you come up with.

Armadillo, that moon looks awesome in that scene.

These are very creative cards! I really like to print a photo onto white or cream Bazzill (textured) cardstock, then double mount that to the front of a card. I frequently print a sentiment via WordArt when I print the photo.
