Peaceful Poinsettia Greenery
At first, I didn't like the branch of greenery that comes with Peaceful Poinsettia. It doesn't look like poinsettia leaves, and I didn't think it would be very pretty. I almost didn't use it, which would have been tragically stupid because it's a perfectly lovely image. So much for first impressions!
I am not sure about the threading water punch on this card, though. I think the MS lattice border, which I used so effectively here, would have been nicer. But it's not bad as is, and threading water does add excellent interest to CAS cards.
Rambling about Photos: I did dink with the color in Picasa a bit on this card and hope this doesn't look as blue as some of the cards I've posted lately. I tried shooting some pics yesterday (mostly overcast, but some sun got through!) and had some trouble with white looking blue again. I wonder if the sun has shifted enough that I need to change which window I shoot at, or if I need to add my Ott light to the sunlight to brighten things up a bit. Wish I had a south-facing window, but there's not a single window on the south side of my house. I'll keep fiddling.
