A Sidekick of Figgy Pudding

I'm still trying to figure out a good place to take pictures of my stamping projects in my new craft room when there is no sunshine out side to take pictures with. I keep trying out different spots in the room to set up and take a shot, this one was taken on one of the shelves above my working area. I always try to use one or two sheets of white paper under and behind my project and then use my Ott lite to add extra lighting and some times things still come out looking dark and need to be tweaked on the computer.

This is a quick Christmas card using the stamp sets Sidekick Sayings, Polka Dot background and some Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper. The colors are Always Artichoke and Ruby Red, I used the tag corner punch to create the tags after distressing the edges of the paper and then used the small oval punch with a large brad to make a fake tag pull. I used an aqua brush to color the tree, added some ribbon and voila!

Hope your week is off to a great start!

PS my little guy is feeling a bit better today - hooray!

Your card is great! I have a challenge trying to find good picture places too, especially with our late sunrises and early sunsets!
