Trying a new way of taking pictures

Not bad, huh? Today is very overcast with snow flurries and there was no way to get a good, non flashed picture, so I finally made a make shift lightbox. A friend and I were saying we really needed to do this, so I did:) This is the first picture I've taken using it and the colors are more true and I didn't need to use a flash. Yea!

This card uses some new stamps I just got from CHF. The Picotage Backgrounder, Scripture Essentials 1 and Beautiful. I cut a Labels 1 Nestie, added some piercing, ink distressing and some Spring Moss PTI ribbon and stiched on a hydrangea flower and button. The little heart stick pin is made out of chipboard cut with my Cricut using OA. I also very lightly colored in parts of the backgrounder with my Primacolor pencils.
Here is a boy verison of the door hanger. Used New Arrival and my Cricut to cut this and then added some stiched buttons.
And here is my makeshift light box! I used a diaper box, cut off one side of it and lined it with copy paper. I'm sure it could improved, but I am pretty happy with it so far! If you have any suggestions let me know. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Thank you so much for the tip. I often photograph late at night and the cards turn out so yellow. I will try to make my own lightbox too.

Clever you- on all three projects! And thankyou for showing us how you made your light box, I will have to have a go at that as well.
