"The real measure of a day's heat [or how warm you have the house!] is the length of a sleeping cat."

I did it!!!
With this card, I managed an entry in all SEVEN, count 'em seven, of the Winnie & Walter WCMD Week of Challenges!!!! I am really pleased. There is no extra prize or anything for doing all seven challenges, but I just wanted to. :)
This last one was the On Trend with Lea challenge which was a puzzle for me because it asked you to make a card with the trendy camera theme. I am not a camera bug and don't have any camera stamps or papers, so I didn't think I could finish out the challenges. But I searched and searched through my stash and finally found this little Glitz camera rhinestone button:
That's not a very good picture of it, but it is what I based my entire card around.
The only thing I could think of for this card was to make a faux photograph and use the shiny camera piece. So out came a stack I didn't figure I personally would ever use, but that eventually my granddaughter would: the DCWV All Dolled Up Stack that has paper dolls and accessories in it.
So, I chose one of the gals in the stack and put a little tropical-looking outfit on her and a Prima flower in her hair. Then I found a palm tree looking background from the DCWV Premium Photo Stack and "snapped" a vacation shot. :)
I mounted the photo with Scrapbook Adhesives white photo corners and put her on a background of exotic paper. The camera in the corner was all that was needed for additional embellishment.
So....what do you think? I will probably use this for a young teenage gal at some point....turn it into a birthday card, perhaps. I think it will work.
This challenge was a stretchhhhhhhhhhhh for me, but I gave it my best shot and ended up having fun with it...even though I was rushed here at the end. A big THANK YOU to Winnie & Walter for the tremendously fun time I had entering ALL SEVEN of your WCMD challenges! (Whew!!) I am so grateful you kept your challenges open for the whole week!!
