Merry and Bright

Hi everyone!  It's another Monday and I hope you are all having a good start to your week :)

I had a good weekend.  I got to relax, sleep in, went to the movies, got addicted to The Walking Dead and caught up with all the episodes, and made a card for fun!  Got some homework done, too.  Hope yours was okay, too!

So, here's the card I made for fun.  Sorry for the super dark photos.  I tried to lighten them, but the blending on the skirt would turn out so horrible!  It would just look like I have a big blotchy light spot in the middle.  This is the best I could do to keep it looking as close as possible to how it looks in real life.  Does anyone have any advice on how to take decent photos that stays true to what your colored image is supposed to look like??  I'm terrible and I feel bad since I have a fairly good camera (Nikon D90), but I don't know how to take advantage of it.  I usually take photos at night or under low light.  Please help!

The card uses the sketch at The Sugar Bowl.  There is an optional challenge of Clean and Simple and I'm not sure if this card fits.  It doesn't have very many embellishments, but the stitching makes it look busier than it is. I bought a few Sugar Nellie images a while back and haven't found the time to use them.  I love the Simply Sassy range!  I know the illustrator now does digis, but I just love rubber stamps :)
