I decided to try the challenge at Time Out Challenges. The card needed to have a love or friendship theme and as an option, use the spotlight stamping technique. I admit, I had to google that technique, you add color to one raised area of your image. It took me a few days of thinking about the technique and going through my stamps sets not once, but twice, before I decided on this set. I'm not sure I did the technique correctly, but I did like the final card I came up with. I stamped the image twice, once in black, once in Lagoon. I cut the black image out with a circle die, and fussy cut the friendship banner out with a scissors.
I have a confession, this is actually take 2 on this card. The first one didn't have the black mat between the card base and the newspaper print paper. It also had a white mat beneath the diamond layer instead of the ruffle ribbon. I didn't like it. It needed more. So I ripped it apart and went in search of black cardstock. I'm out. I had to cut the back off a black card so I could have something to cut the scallop circle out of. Thankfully, I had cut the scallop with enough edge that I could use it under the newsprint paper. I also added 3 clear sparkles to the bottom right corner.
