Some cards are just really hard to photograph or scan and capture the true colors or special effects of them. I aptly named this one the Toughest Little Card because my DH and I took about 40 different digital pictures of it under all kinds of light settings lastnight. I waited until daybreak to capture this photo which best captures the colors but doesn't show the sparkling dazzling diamonds or stickles on the little stars and the sentiment.
Anyhoo, I had a lot of fun playing with chipboard for the first time. The sentiment was stamped in white craft onto the Holiday Thyme designer paper and then heat embossed. It is matted on a piece of Whisper White in the little window. TFL at the Toughest Little Card!!

Adorable!!! I have the same photo problems myself, this really is beautiful. I love the look of the embossing on the bg paper, and your chipboard is awesome, and the hardware effects in the cornoers..WOW! TFS
Now these three remain, faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is Love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
