Say Cheese!

Birdie Brown has a Freebie Challenge this month.  If you've never checked out her shop, you should definitely have a look at her blog.

Here is my card for this month's image.  I used "Carrie's Sketch" from Sketch Saturday #253.  I really loved working with it.

I tried, without much success, to capture the shimmery & glittery details of the Creative Inspirations Paint on the flowers and parts of the camera and glitter on the bird and other parts of the camera. 

And the shocker, this card is done on the inside too!  I gave it a go and added a photo to the inside white circle and I loved the way it looked but adhered the blank one for this post.  This image couldn't be more appropriate for cards made for sharing photos with a loved one.

I would like the enter this card in the following challenges:
