Another 2 Challenges in 1...Sort of!

Happy Friday! I decided to do 2 challenges in one card again today, and I will show you the finished card first. It combines Rosette's Club Anya challenge for yesterday (use Bling!) with the Christmas Stamping All Year Long challenge for this week which was to make a spotlight card. I've never made a spotlight card before and I don't think I quite had the hang of it. The longer I looked at it the less I liked it and I finally pulled the colored part off (2nd picture). I definitely like it better that way. I think the next time I make a spotlight card I will pick an area more toward the middle to spotlight. So, I don't know if it still counts as two challenges because I pulled the spotlight off of the final card, but I do have a picture of when it had both challenges completed!! (I know it doesn't really matter, I'm just being silly!!) I also used last Fridays Farm Fresh sketch again!

The second picture is a lot darker because it was later in the day when I decided to take off the colored part and I had lost my light!!

Wow, beautiful Traci. . .and I mean both cards...with or without the spotlight. I love them. I think it looks great with the spotlight. I would add a thin mat around the spotlight so it shows up more as a spotlight. Your cards are always so beautifully colored and the designs are so pretty. The blings on the flowers are fantastic. Thank you for playing in this weeks CSAYL challenge!! Love that you're playing along!
