Life's Portrait

One of our rare family photos, taken at a cousin's wedding last Saturday. I say "rare" because it's always either me or DH doing the photographing, so we're seldom in the same photo together!

The photo was taken without use of a flash but I thought it turned out rather nice, albeit with a slightly yellowish tone due to the "mood" lighting of the function room. To match the background, I decided to use a similarly yellowish toned cardstock from Basic Grey.

The die-cut paper is from Webster's Pages Life's Portrait Collection, as is, of course, the title as well.

I love the muted colours of the die-cut paper, and chose similar coloured flowers as embellishments.

I then used black and grey laces to balance off the black and grey border of the die-cut, as well as the Grand Dame Prima flower.
