Last of the Birthday Barrage (and a Hoedown card)

This week's Hambo Hoedown is to use a frame on your card and the new digi set Camera Guy from Hambo Stamps

I just remember always taking a picture of someone taking a picture of me.  Its like a rite of passage in my family.  So since this card is for my aunt who will be celebrating her 90th birthday soon, I thought a little homage to the family tradition was in order

 Its a simple little number but super cute.  I printed the Camera Guy on white card stock and colored with Copics.  Then I punched a hole in some black card stock with my largest square punch and used my spiral notebook punch to make it look like a film strip.  If I was thinking I would have done it in shades of brown so it looked like a negative.  Maybe next time ... but see that little sparkle of light on the camera's lens?

I did have the mental fortitude to add Crystal Effects to the lens so it looks like glass :)

Thanks for stopping!
