Thursday Blast From the Past Challenge - Spotlighting

Hi everyone,
This week has flown by...and tonight my mojo with it!

Had my card all planned but I just wasn't "feeling it" once I got started...KWIM... but out of time and decided to post this card anyway instead of starting all over.

This week's challenge is Spotlighting! and the twist - no twist - anything goes!!!! so many ways to spotlight...have fun!

I think its that plastic clear bubble thing (experimenting) that I dont like...bummer...
and to keep the glare down the pic had to be lightened which really washed out the card's colors
oh well...let me stop my whining LOL ....

Using an image for GKD's set "Spring has Sprung" by Rupa Shevde, colored with Copics C1, 3, 5 and B23, 26. GKD's cardstock Black and Little Boy Blue, scrap dp and GKD's Gingham ribbon.The pic doesnt show the embossing using the Spellbinders "Butterfly" Impressabilities that was lightly sponged with Distress Ink - Faded Jeans...its much prettier in real life!

Here's wishing everyone a great mojo week on your Spotlighting Cards
have a blessed week,

Hi Linda,
I am often amazed at the number of crafters who post cards that they don't quite like only to find that everybody else loves it. I don't see anything wrong with this card. I love the image and the layout.

I agree with Lil Daffodil....what isn't to like? I think it is brilliant!! I just love how the colored birdie under the bubble stands out and it really is super creative!!
I give you two thumbs up! :)

You are just to hard on yourself! I love this... the little clear circle rocks! I wish I could do work like this when my mojo has taken a hike!

I like it, Linda. I think the way you colored it is awesome, popping the spotlight area. Your button and bow are gorgeous!
