Summer Time

Here’s an unusual bold and bright card from me for today’s TLC challenge on We had to pick three old challenges and combine them to make a card. The color combination I chose (Summer Sun, Real Red, and Pink Passion) ended up being a bigger challenge than I expected it to be.

The technique used on this card is called spotlighting, and it is great if you don’t have time to do a lot of coloring – you just have a color a small part of the image! I stamped the bike on Pink Passion and Whisper White card stock, and then punched out the flower basket with the 1-1/4″ circle punch. After coloring in the image with Stampin’ Up! markers, I layered it on a 1-3/8″ Summer Sun circle and glued this on top of the Pink Passion card stock. Yellow rhinestones were added to the wheels for some extra sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by!
