March Challenge Cards

Happy Spring, Everyone!  It was finally a beautiful Spring day today.  I hope you were all out enjoying it :)

Let's get to the cards!  Here was the challenge:

First up is Regina's card.  I love how she did this!  I didn't realize you could achieve the spotlight effect by coloring the "spotlighted" image a shade lighter.  I LOVE this card!  It's perfect for Spring and the area Regina concentrated on for the spotlight is so cute!  Thank you for joining us, Regina.  You always make beautiful cards and inspire me!  Please check out more of Regina's wonderful creations on her blog here.

Next up is Michelle's card.  Again, what a great Spring card!  The colors are so much fun and I love that Michelle chose to spotlight two areas!  Again, I didn't realize you could spotlight an area using a different color other than black.  I learned a lot through this challenge!  The texture, the colors, the flowers and much greatness in this card, Michelle!  I love it!

And here is my card.  A neighbor just had a baby, so it was perfect for me to break out my jumbo wheel and create this card.  When I saw the elephant, I knew I wanted to spotlight it!  I love this technique because you don't have to color too much, but I think it makes a really nice card that's totally different from the usual cards.
I know I have one more card coming to post and maybe even two!  I promise to post them as soon as I get them.  Thank you for looking and have a great weekend!
