You're Amazing Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "Key To My Heart" Digi and Maja Design Fika Paper

Hello Friends.  I am back again.   I have actually felt better the past few days; so I am eagerly trying to catch up with my posting of past creations; as well as postings of new cards. I  am so excited to share with you another new digi artist that I discovered this past week.  I found three new ones that create such gorgeous digis.  I like to create with girl/lady digis; because I have a mother, two sisters, a daughter and 4 granddaughters.  And - of course lots of lady friends and other family as well.  Plus - It is so much fun creating feminine cards.  It is easier for me than creating male cards.  

This is my first time to color purple/lavender hair.  I had so much fun doing this; but I was so disappointed in the pictures.  I took 175 pictures; using both my IPhone and my husbands camera; but still poor results.  The purples and lavenders do not show up as they should.  I hope you can use your imagination.  The keys are actually a shiny silver color; but they look grey.  I changed pictures and the purple color shows up a little better now.

This card is absolutely gorgeous with the lavenders and purples; but you can't really tell here what the true colors are on the card.  Normally my IPhone takes really good pictures.  My regular camera broke; but it didn't take this color very well either.  If anyone has a camera that takes these colors accurately; please let me know. I like the small, easy to handle cameras; point and shoot. LOL!
