Thanks for the challenge, Jen! I have seen challenges for the spotlight technique before but I never tried it. This is my first attempt. I'm having trouble photographing/ scanning my white/light-colored cards. Although the colors re brighter IRL, this is the best photo I could get :)
I punched out a circle in my card front. I stamped the tree to the inside left and colored the buds. I masked part of the tree branches with a smaller circle and sponged a blue sky all around it, leaving the center branches w/white space behind them. I punched a square punch and lined up the negative over the card front circle, placing the original solid circle mask over my stamped image. I stamped the leaf stamp frame. I stamped the PTI sentiment. I stamped three PTI flower centers to serve as brads of sorts.
THANKS for looking at my FIRST spotlight card! :)

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
