Violinist My Valentine card (Milk Coffee image)

Hi everyone,

Today I've created a card using my new window and shutter die cuts, I love them! This has been the hardest card to take a photo of as it's so pretty and light but just keeps coming out dark and awful. The really silly part is I managed to take the best photo and then realised the shutters were upside down doh lol! I had to re-do them completely! The beautiful image is from Milk Coffee.
