Tuesday Morning Sketches #295

Good Morning!  Well, officially the month of birthdays ended yesterday.  Hollyanne is 17 and I am just awed by this wonderful young woman she has become.  She's beautiful, she's talented, she's a fiercely loyal friend and despite her diva-like moments, she's very kind-hearted.  But thank goodness, no more birthdays until June.

Anyway, the latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and we have veteran sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps with us this week.  My card features Make it Snappy - Thanks a Bunch.


I have always admired cards created with a spotlight technique.  There's probably tons of ways to create a spotlight, but I really like this one.  I sized the image so that I can make it into a 4 x 5 1/4 mat and then printed it off a second time to create the spotlight.  I did use an oval cut smaller than I wanted but it was it was and I just had to deal with it.  I die cut the rick-rack trim from a die by MFT Stamps and then embossed with the basket weave embossing folder from Stampin' Up!  The sentiment is cut using my Silhouette Cameo.

Pretty easy card - cool punch of color.  Thank you for stopping by and please head over to TMS to play along!
