It's week 4 at Sophisticats

This is my DT card for this week's challenge over at Sophisticats, we're on week 4 already, blimey how did that happen? And this week the Sketch has been provided by the wonderful wacky Stef. It's a great sketch, interesting without being too complicated I think so I hope you'll join in & you can win one of Lisa's own CD's that she designs, which is full of gorgeous backing papers.

I had an absolute nightmare trying to photo this card, no matter what I did I just couldn't get the colours right, they're still not right now, but as good as it's going to get, I'm seriously considering getting myself a small light box for photography, as now the days are drawing in & the good weather surely won't last much longer, I think it'll come in very handy. My hubby (who hates paying for anything as he says he can make it himself (and he's usually right!) cobbled together a light box inside a cupboard when I mentioned I needed one! He rigged it up with white boards, a light, sheeting and all sorts, but I did get better results than I got outside).

Anyway, I've gone for another Christmas card, and it's all Stampin' Up! A couple of weeks ago I visited my SU! granny (my upline's upline in other words!!) and stamped out some images from the lovely Scandinavian Season set (and have now added this to my never-ending wishlist!).


Stamp Set - Scandinavian Season
Ink - Always Artichoke, Real Red
Stampin' Write Markers - Real Red; Pumpkin Pie
Cardstock - Always Artichoke; Real Red, Whisper White
Plus Dazzling Diamonds glitter

Other - Cuttlebug embossing plate.

Hope you'll join us this week.

Beautiful Jan - I love the colours you've chosen - very classy. My hubby said and did exactly the same thing and made me a DIY light box, but I have used it to death and it is falling apart. Aparently the girls on the forum were saying you can get a pop up light tent for about £15! I might check that out. Although that is the equivelant of at least 3 stampin pads - hee hee.

Hey Jan...well done Kev!! tell him so too! he saved you betweem a tenner & 40 squiddlies, now that's hats off to him..that's all I can say and I to be extremely honest Jan the lighting is perfect! I live in quite a bright house as im on top of a hill & I always have to use my day lamp and white card surround to get a decent pic.
Love this card as you know. Very talented friend I have. You inspire me hun.
