Flowers galore and Panpastels

Morning everyone and today is the start of a new challenge at Happy Campers and the challenge is sooooooo easy "Show is Ya Flowers" now how easy is that???and the challenge runs for a month so no excuse really.I made a card posted it but wasn't happy with it soooo deleted it before (hopefully) Kath didnt see it, and I decorated a chipboard heart-from Joanna Sheen,coloured with yellow/orange and red panpastels-my first attempt too-thought it was about time I used them,only had them since March lol.I then stamped the flower image -a freebie stamp from Craft stamper mag onto the heart then onto then onto three different scraps of paper from stash,I cut into the petals for dimension,added buttons and dewdrops and ribbon from stash.
I am using an iphone for taking and uploading pics,BUT I crop and save the images then when I upload them to blog they are still not cropped as I would like-any advice would be appreciated.

    Advice for cropping photos : I also use an iPhone to take my pictures but then I upload them to my laptop and use an photo editing software like photoscape to crop etc.
    hope this helps.
