Sorta the spotlight, but not really!!! haha!!  I stamped the front of the card with Tuxedo Black ink, the did the inside ith Melon Mambo!  Punched out squares, so the Mambo peeks through!!

Sketch Frenzy Friday

Good afternoon!!!  This afternoon was so relaxing!  I've been in my stamp room for about an hour now, and it's been so nice!!  Now, I need to go take care of dinner, and get ready for the upcoming week.  But, I wanted to share this card I made for the Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge:

I pulled out some new designer paper--Sweet Taffy.  It's really bright and fun--all my favorite colors!  I paired it with Flower Patch.  I can't seem to stop using this set!!!  (sorry!!)


The weather here has been very cloudy--so, I apologize for the picture.  It's just not as bright as I usually like, but you gotta work with what you've got! :-)
