Thinking of You Spotlight Card

Hello there! It's Theary back on the blog today. I have a fun card technique to share with you today. It's my take on the spotlight technique. The spotlight technique highlights a design element on your card front, and I decided to twist it up by emphasizing the background scene. So, instead of putting color on my stamped image, I only added color to the background scene. I am leaving an untouched stamped image which I think looks fantastic.
