Dragonfly Dreams from Stampin' Up! and a New Camera!

Once again it's a blustery winter morning, and I'm bundled up under my favourite blanket, admiring the snow from my comfy couch.  I heard the snowplow go by earlier today, and my first thought regarding the end of the driveway was, shovel or drive over it.  Having peered out the window, drive over it wins...again.

Today I have for you a card I made for a card swap last weekend.  The pictures you'll see below are the first taken from my new camera.  These were taken at night, in my studio, using only my OttLight and ceiling light.  Eventually I'll get the lighting and camera figured out.

The card I designed features the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle from the new Occasions Catalogue.  I love this set.  Seriously, who doesn't love dragonflies - they are so cool.

I used a stamp from the Sheltering Tree set for the greenery.

My attempt at getting the background cards to be blurry in the background, while focusing on the card in front.  

Almost done!

Here's a handy tip.  When stamping the inside of the card, be sure you're not stamping in the wrong place.  Notice where I placed Happy Birthday - yup, that's where I stamped the inside sentiment.  No worries though, my little solution covered up the oops easily.
