In the Spotlight

Kelly, one of the members of the Stamp Addicts Blog Group challenged us to something that was new for most of us - the Spotlight Technique. If you're not familiar with this technique, there's a great tutorial on SCS. You can find it by clicking here.

Truthfully, I am NOT happy with this card - but bear in mind, it is my FIRST attempt at the spotlight technique.

I used a BRAND NEW stamp that my friend Barb mailed to me - THANK YOU, BARB!!! It's a Whipper Snapper stamp called Clowning Around.  

I Whipper Snapper stamps!

I know what I wish I had changed about my card. I wish I'd made the spotlight circle of the clown's face larger - a larger circle that would have included more of his adorable face. Then I think I would have liked my card. Oh well, maybe next time. ;)

Here's the inside of my card:

Thanks for stropping  by my blog today!
