Spotlighting with Circle Circus

This is a super simple card to teach the spotlighting technique to my club this month.  Once I started working with my Circle Circus stamp set...there was no stopping me... it was all circles!  I originally finished the card, but it felt like it was missing something... it really lacked dimension.  I decided to try and cover up a botched stamped circle by spotlighting the image and I was thrilled with the way it worked!  I love how your own mistakes can often become a lesson in a whole new technique!
