Spotlight on Christmas

Trying something a little different with the spotlight technique today - instead of the customary circle, I tried it with a star.  I think it turned out pretty well, but I have an even better idea for the next card. :-D  BTW, the poinsettias were colored with Cherry Cobbler Classic ink and a blender pen.  I don't have a clue why it looks pink in the photo.

I'm keeping the post brief today (hey, wait a minute.....did I just hear some of you cheer?!). I hope you all have a wonderful long Labor Day weekend.  Those of you with children in school, if they haven't started already, they surely will next week, so enjoy your upcoming free time! Woohoo!!!
