Treehouse Stamps - Get into the Spotlight!

Here is the second card for today.
This time we are in The Treehouse and our challenge was set by the wonderful Kelly
She wanted us to try the Spotlight technique.

This was a new technique for me and if you'd like to see a tutorial there is one at Split Coast Stampers that really helped me.

I had another couple of challenges to help me make this card:

Cupcake Inspirations had Sweet Flowery Cupcakes
The Crafty Pad want Yellow, Orange and Green
Sweet Stampin had a great sketch
Raise The Bar had an April Fool theme and wanted to see a technique/project you usually shy away from, well this is certainly one of those cards!
Copic Colour wanted R17, Y13 and YG21

Card Recipe:
Image - Sea Turtle Friend
Paper - The Paper Studio Gabi's Garden
Medium - Copic Markers
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts

Here you can see where I "spotlit" the shell on the turtle.
So I'd love to see you give this a try!

Oh how cute! I totally love his shells colored in, wonderful idea to use a shaped nestie instead of a circle for the spotlight. Thank you so much for joining us at Raise The Bar this week!
