combined challenges

I'm having camera woes AGAIN! i cannot begin to tell you how frustrating it is to have a beautiful card to share one that actually gave you lots of pleasure to create and then the photo's look like s#$*, i wante dot throw this damn camera against the wall.  As you will see in these photos, there seems to be a blur around the edges, i know some photos have that as a technique on their photos, well i do not like it!

Anyhoo enough griping i will tell you about my card that gave me so much pleaseure instead.  Its my newish ladybug Tilda, colored with copics, i know i should list my colors, will try to remember., lots of glittah, and those roses, hmmmm, i made them and thats the real pleasure here, i used velum and two different size punches and then molded them slighty with those rounded head embossing tools, layered them up and then added more glittah to the edges, love those. Added a length of ribbon down the side of my card over the border that i used one of my MS punches to make.  All the dp is MME and cardstock is basil.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

  27. Such a pretty card! You really did a good job on the coloring and everything! Maybe you have a smudge on your camera lens? It appears on the same side in all your photos. That would do it. I always try to find something simple first. Hugs, Barb F
