Very lovely card. I presume the photo challenge was to capture the shimmer effect of the paper. One of the best lights for this at night is halogen. If you have a track light centre a small table in the light beam and try that. I see you have a 45 degree angle that's the other thing. Other things to try is slow the speed and/or if you have a high end digital you may have a flower setting, use that. Hope that helps.

Gorgeous card - love your rose. I hear you on the struggle to get a good photo. Glad Jenna could help you. I will be trying again in the morning to get a better photo of my card!! Love the texture on your black panels - hope to get my hands on that embossing folder soon! Love the effect it adds! :)
