Sweet Angel and some Housey Pics

Hello all. Thanks for your lovely comments on my last creation; I really appreciate them :o)
Been working on the house today. I got quite dusty and dirty but didn't actually acheive much tbh.
Watched X Factor this evening; it does make me laugh - more the judges than the contestants tonight!
Right, onto the card. The card I'd like to share with you all today is one that I worked on last Sunday using an image received in an image swap last month (not sure which stamp range it's from?).  Lots of detail and distressing done. The papers are all Magnolia but I stamped the tag shape with some elzybell word stamps using antique linen distress ink. I made the two pink paper flowers by punching out two different sized flowers onto Magnolia papers which I scrunched and sprayed with Tattered Angels Gold Mist.  
I'm a bit annoyed that the image looks quite pale. If anyone has any photography tips to share (other than using the macro option on the camera) please do! lol. Otherwise quite happy with the card on the whole. I'll probably give this to Adam's mum for her birthday.

Now for some housey pics. The first set of pics are of my bathroom. It's not finished yet but you can at least the transformation...

Now, this is part of my lounge,mainly the fireplace that was covered by some, nasty, saloon type doors but we removed them and rebuilt part of the wall and rendered it once damp proofed.
Hope you like!
