Vintage Fairy

I'm not going to mention the weather, suffice to say my sister will notice the drop in temperature when she arrives for a visit from Mallorca at the end of the week!! Today's card was a bit of a challenge for me as it is a vintage card - a subject I have trouble with (among many, lol!), however I thought I'd give it a go and was reasonably pleased with the result. I have had yet another fiddle with my camera settings and think this time I may have made some improvements - the backing card I have used is a peachy colour and before I made the adjustments the photos came out a bright orange!! After the adjustments they are much nearer, but not exactly the same as the actual card, so I'm feeling a bit happier.
