Raspberry Suite color challenge #8

Happy Saturday everyone & Happy 28th Anniversary to me & my hubby!!! Before I show you my card I wanted to let you know that I am taking a photography class....so you may see some different....sometimes strange photos of my cards for a while ;) I am killing 2 birds with one stone. Sill want the time to make my cards....but need to practice taking pictures (for homework).Now if I could only figure out how to take pictures while I play volleyball LOL!!!!! I am very busy these days! work full time, on a volleyball league & taking photo class!! Still need to do my crafty stuff too!!! That is a must! Any way....for today's creation I played along with Dawn's color challenge.....here is my card:
Some things I used for my photo.... from my stash.....Cuttlebug folder, ribbon from Michael's, Martha Stewart glitter, Nesties, Stamp set & all paper, PTI. Marvey punches. Background...One of my plants that is not dead from the heat!

On a side note....speaking of photography, I found this amazing Magazine at Michael's By scrapbooks etc. It is chocked full of tips & ideas well worth the money! I have read & reread, & will read it again!! the more I learn the more I want to learn :)
Thanks so much to today's visit! And thanks for the Challenge Dawn!!!

What a DARLING card! I love the color scheme --that pink just pops! Luxurious ribbon, Nesties, dimension, and even embossing...doesn't get better than that! Like your backdrop too. ;)

Thanks for the 411 on the photo book...I need all the help I can get, so it's going on my Wish List.
