Talk about leaving it to the last minute, they set a new challenge tomorrow and here I am, in like Flynn at almost the last possible moment!  PBSC wanted to see “Buttons Galore” on your creation this week, I think I qualify in that department!  I saw this beautiful PB stamp on sale for 30% off at Hobby Lobby last week and couldn’t say no, but let’s face it, I’d have a really hard time saying no to anything to do with crafting now wouldn’t I???

I hadn’t used the spotlight technique before and I had only intended to have the one panel raised up with the image stamped on it, but as I was lifting the stamp off the lovely paper I twisted it slightly and so the top star burst was smudged, and there no way in hell I was throwing away that scrummy paper!  So I just went with Plan B and did two “spotlights” instead of the one.  The spotlights are stamped and edged in TH Peeled Paint and they’re accented with Lime Green and Yellow Stickles.  There’s a bit of the green stickles on the main image too.
