A Spotlight Thanks

Hi lovely friends ~

Another day off, how fabulous has this extra long weekend been! Great weather here in Canberra too, despite it cooling down. I do love the sunny blue skies we get here even during the freezing cold of Winter - not that we're close to that kind of cold yet.

I made this little 'thank you' card the other night for an email friend at work - we haven't met in person but she's been super helpful to me over recent months and she's such a hard worker that I'm sure she'll be quite thrilled to receive something in the mail.

I was completely inspired by this card that the ever so talented Danielle Daws made earlier this year.

I'm not sure I've even used the Birthday Bakery set to date. I think it's perfect for the 'Spotlighting' technique though. My card base is Naturals Ivory and I've used a little Love Letter dsp - too totally easy. The little cakes are coloured with a blender pen and I added Crystal Effects and some Dazzling Diamonds for sparkle to an otherwise CAS card.


  1. I like it alot. I have never used spotlighting before, I'm going to put on my must list to do.

  2. Gorgeous! I must make some more of that one... it's so cute! :-)

  3. Ooooooooooo me likey this one alot!!! Those cakes look yummy enough to eat!


  4. Simply stunning .... I love this technique, oh so effective ....

  5. This card is so elegant - love that DSP :)

  6. Very sweet (no pun intended lol) I love the clean simple style, makes for a classy finish!!

  7. I love this card, and that technique looks great using that stamp set, beautiful.

  8. Yet another techy in my vault yet to see the light of day. So love this card Patrice. The simplicity of the B & W and then the POW of the colour. So well done darl. ooxx

  9. Love this! Simply beautiful!

  10. I do love this technique though I haven't done it for a while. Thanks for the reminder. Thanks, too, for visiting my blog and commenting.
