Spotlight on JUGS

You still have a chance for some blog candy in honor of my blogaversary so stop over and check it out HERE.

Hi all - today is our Technique Challenge at Just Us Girls - we have a great technique for you this week - it's called Spotlight and you can find a great tutorial about it on SCS by clicking here.
I turned to one of my favorite (but discontinued I think) Stampin Up! stamp sets called Toile Blossoms for this card. A simple birthday card but isn't it fun how the colors just POP in that little spotlight circle??

Papers are Ripe Avocado and Plum Pudding from PTI. A couple of MS punches and a strip of Bitty Dot paper also from PTI provided me accent border strip. A snippet of ribbon and some pretty purple pearls (boy say that three times fast!) and I was done.  Here's a look at the detail of the spotlight coloring:

Hope you will try this cool technique and play along with us this week. Be sure to stop by our Featured Designer Lori Kalus this month and visit our very talented Design Team members (in my side bar ->).

Thanks, as always, for stopping by! Have a funtastic weekend!
Hugs n Smiles.

My original idea for this technique was to use some flowers but I didn't seem to have the right stamp set like you did! I love the purple and green and your "flower" spotlight is beautiful Pam! Congrats on your two year Blogaversary!
