A Dreaming Start to the Day

I was going to go to bed a little earlier than I usually do, but when I finished this card I thought it turned out lovely. The colors in my photo are much darker than in real life. Even though I've gotten some good tips on my lighting issues I haven't resolved them yet, soon. The card is so soft and dreamy.
