Vicky said...

Beautiful card hun the image is lush as to is the LO & DP's Love the colour combo. I use a FinePix S5600 with super-macro which are canny good but if a camera has super-macro or a carl-zeiss lens then they are supposed to be good with close-ups. Hope this helps a little hun.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xx
