male birthday easel card

How impossible is it to get decent photos in this weather?  I need to set up some sort of lightbox I think, rather than trying to get a smidgen of daylight through the skylight in the office, as the colours are entirely wrong, and are much more muted irl.  Hopeless!!

This card was for my husband's best buddy Tony, and uses a La Pashe "Remember When" decoupage image of an old garage.  I decided on a easel card as the main image is so busy, so I thought it needed a bit of calming down.  I put some stone card from Kanban behind it. but I really think it needed some sort of floor level to stand the mechanics on as they're floating a bit!!  The little tools are brads, and the border punch is from EK.  Plain cardstock is pearl card from Hobbycraft.

Thanks very much for visiting my blog, and of course, please feel free to leave any comments.  xx Jill
