Seeing a spot...Spotlight

I'm hosting the Free 4 All Challenge on SCS today and since I haven't done spotlighting in a while I though that would be something fun for us to do!

I love the spotlighting technique because when you have a large image that needs to be colored it can seem a little overwhelming, but if you choose a little section to color then it's not as daunting!

I love how this card turned out...all the white space looks cool and I think the little colored circle looks pretty awesme too! I got the cool trim downtown at a trim shop (because everything is separated here...there is no one store for all your sewing needs, you have to go to 5 different ones to get everything :) The little jewels I got at on impulse when I bought something else and they were super cheap...so I added it to the cart about a year ago and haven't done anything with them until now! LOL I'm such a hoarder!

Here is a closer view, it doesn't look lined up from this angel but it really is! LOL Ohhh I was pretty excited, I colored the cupcake with my very own Copic markers...I only have 8 but it's a start! LOL

The inside reads "Fun, happy Birthday"
