What's Up!

Hi all, here is a card created with the lovely C.C. Designs - Swiss Pixie Camera Birgitta

picture of the hot air balloons with the glitter.( it has been in my stash for a long time)
I can use it for this Challenge...I have hand cut the hot air balloon shape,and created one for
 Birgitta to stand in ' Smile'she's taking a picture of you...
While taking the pictures for this card...
