Smile for the Camera!

Today's card shows off CC Designs sweet little Swiss Pixie Camera Birgitta. ain't she cute?!!
I've used a digistamp, but they are available as rubber too, for those that prefer.  Fab'nFunky challenges have "Use a Digi" for their challenge this time... I'm in, easy for me I LOVE digis!  Lisa has a little challenge running encouraging us to use our uninked or unused digis, so I'm entering (finally, Lisa!) over at Waste Not Wednesdays
Sketch 'n' Stash have a Free Choice Sketch challenge running at the moment, where you can choose any sketch from their catalogue... I chose this one: 
Sugar Creek Hollow has "Vacation at the Beach" as its challenge this week, I hope my card is shabby-chic/primitive enough to qualify, as it was when I saw their theme I remembered having this image :-)  
I've used my Copics for the skin and Prismacolor pencils to colour the rest of the image, actually I coloured it months ago when I was away on holiday, and just got around to using it.  I added gloss to the sunglasses and the camera lens.
The papers are from Basic Grey's Lauderdale pad, The Crafty Pad wants us to use Fresh Spring Colours, this sure qualifies, so I'm entering there.  The textured cardstock is from DCWV.... I think.  I punched the horizontal strip with an EK Success Slimline Daisy Scallop punch.  The image panel is cut with a Classic Oval Nestabilities die, the mat is cut with a Scalloped Oval Nestie.
I finished the card off with some little butterfly brads that I recoloured with Copics then added some glitter to, some Card Candi and a little gel "Smile" sticker tag that I've had for YEARS!
The inside of the card uses elements from the front... don't they always, lol.
Divas By Design have Anything Goes, as does Allsorts Challenges and Papertake Weekly, so I'm entering those challenges.
That's it for today's card, you can always see loads of inspiration at the All That Scraps Blog, I'll be back in a day or so (aiming for tomorrow, but you know how it goes!) with the card I made for our friend Dave's birthday last Friday - it's cute too, but in a completely different way than young Birgitta here, lol.  Hope you drop by to check it out, until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
