New card and new camera

I think I really do need to read the camera manual or just practice taking pix of cards with the camera. Here is my card for today's sketch challenge.




I think it looks better in real life...but I do need more stamping practice too. I'm just so out of inky shape! haha. I wanted a valentine...but one that wasn't so frilly and girly. I think the colors turned out quite well. Also, I was working on the whole Black EP/embossing thing. Black craft ink with clear embossing powder seems to work better than my old black EP! Now...to get more practice in...stamping and camera-ing.

Edited: That card just bothered me...make a little center for the scallop and added a brad. And then I even straightened the sentiment AFTER I took this pix. New card:
