Happy Saturday Everyone!! It is the weekend and the Spotlight Challenge Team once to start it out with another fun challenge!!!


For this week's challenge.....
The Spotlight Divas would like to challenge you to LET THE SUNSHINE IN!! We thought this week we would ask you to get out your bright colors or use mostly "yellow" or monochromatic yellow for your creations this week!



For our Spotlight sponsor this week we have...
(click HERE to go to store.)

**One lucky winner who participates in the challenge this week will be randomly chosen to receive 3 images from the store!! How cool is that?!**



Here is my creation for this challenge:

I used the Bloomin Beautiful stampset from SU. I inked it up on watercolor paper, colored it with crushed curry so saffron, and old olive, cut it out and mounted it on dimensionals. I just love the look of the bright white embossed background so I paired it with my yellow. The embossing folders are Victoria and Swiss Dots.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are inspired by my creation to join this week's challenge. For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:

Thanks for stopping by today!! I will be back with another post at 8 a.m. EST for the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Hop and Scavenger Hunt!! Hope to see you there!!
