Friends of Speedy TV #

Isn't is amazing how the weekends speed by!! So our
 new  FOSTV challenge is a Labor Day theme.
Labor Day was founded to celebrate the economic and social 
contributions of workers. It is usually a day of enjoying your 
favorite pastime or just resting. Using an image
 from the Island Life Set, looks like where
I would like to spend my labor day!
Things have been quite hectic lately and
I struggled with what to do sooo I decided to
  make a real C&S card. 
After scoring the 3 lines I stamped,  water
 colored the image and made some clouds,,, Done!  My sentiment 
is from the Today, Tomorrow and Always set.

My card is not curved But all my pics always look like they
are. Anyone have any advice??

  1. a beautiful relaxing card! Have a nice day!
    ( if you scan the card you will not have that problem, or take the photo from a larger distance and cut some of the white off)

  2. Lovely relaxing scene and beautiful sky.

  3. Beautiful scene you have created Davi! Is the card lying on its back? That maybe why it is slightly curved. Take careX:)

  4. Wow! Great the watercoloring and great clouds. Look so real. My advice...use macro setting...take the photo from a further distance (just a few inches) and crop your picture.

  5. I love a clean and simple card so this is very pretty to me. Love your clouds. That looks like a perfect place to be for Labor Day.

  6. What a lovely scene Davi! The clouds are perfect! My cards look that way when I lay them down as well. Think the only way to stop it is to stand it up. (I always feel like I get a better shot with it lying down hugs, Kimberly

  10. Davi, this is wonderful! Love the addition of the score lines and that scene is beautiful!
    Curved photo shots - mine do too at times. Someone told me to zoom in to about 2.0 and then get back, then crop. Sometimes that helps.
    Love your card!

  11. This is beautifully colored! That looks like a great Labor Day weekend to me!

  12. This is a beautiful scene! I love the score lines. They finish your card perfectly.

  13. What a pretty card. Your coloring looks amazing..
