Rachel's Sister's Birthday Card

Let me start out by saying I love this card. It came out better than even I expected, lol. I was asked to make this card by my hubby's cousin for her sister. They are Twilight addicts as well.

I used the sketch from Twilight Tuesday Sketch Challenge 9. I turned it on it's side so I could fit Edward without having to make a bigger card. The only thing I am unhappy with would be his hair. I used SU watercolor pencils for the first time and I should have tested colors before I put them in his hair. I was also coloring him at night so that didn't help either.

I crinkled up back layer for dimension. It was scary doing it cause I didn't want to mess it up and waste precious paper, lol. I have a question for you all... how do I get a good pic of the dimension on my card? I am having issues with getting a good pic but I know it is possible because I've seen them. Thanks!
This is the inside of the card. I am very happy with the way it turned out.
Supplies are all SU except for Edward Stamp and metal dots (dots I won from Twilight Tuesday blog candy) Paper Basic Black, Real Red and Whisper White. DP Christmas Coco and Night and Day are from the SU mini that will be available next month. Stamps Sincere Salutations, Birthdays Count and Friends 24/7.

This is super cute!! Love the sparkle! So cool your family is into Twilight too, LOTS to talk about! ;)
To show dimension I try to photgraph from the side and get a really good bright light from above the card or a light source from the side. Hope you can find a way that works for you! :) Love your card!
