reverse spotlighting!

hi there, this post is for Donna's challenge over at STV "reverse spotlighting - remember that a randomly drawn entry wins a FREE stamp set!

For as easy as this card turned out - it sure took me forever to do it!!!  just couldnt get a grip on the reverse spotlighting...now that I've done it... realize I was my own worst enemy because I was overthinking it...duuhhhhh...me!! over thinking!!! LOL

card above was posted over on STV earlier today.
sooooo, we were rained out of fireworks...soooo did another card with this technique....
well, two for me on one challenge! wow...
think I will stick with regular spotlighting LOL

do love my handmade flower (it was made from the circles that were punched out including the ones that werent punched in right spot :-) and leaves...
now back to blog surfing and watching toots! waiting for the Macy's fireworks on TV...
