Wow, was this ever a hard card to photograph, the 'ballet blue'  true colour tones never came through, don't know how many times I photographed it and even tried  to use software to  gentle it up but guess I just don't know enough about the software to make it work. Finally gave up with a 'C'est La Vie' or in English 'That's Life' :O)! 

This card is for our teenage Granddaughter.
