Celebrate Card... in the Spotlight

Hello and good morning..

Hope you were able to get some fun in this weekend, since it's good ole Monday and back to the grind.

Up on the Cards in Envy blog is a cool new technique challenge to play along with. 
The challenge: In the Spotlight! "Spot Light" an item or area on your card to make it stand out.
For example, maybe on part of your image like one flower or the face you make a circle of light or what looks like a light on just that part of the card.

Here is what I came up with for this challenge:
 I used a cupcake DRS stamp as my main image and then punched out an area and colored in the highlighted area, added some black cardstock as a backing and then a pop dot to make it stand out a bit.

I'm going to have to try that technique again...

**Make sure your card is an A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") and is 1/4" or less in thickness to fit in an envelope.**

Can't wait to see what you come up with..
Have a great day!!!!
