JUGS128: Spotlighting with Elements of Style

This is my cards for the Just Us Girls weekly challenge. This week was a color challenge. The colors were light pink, spring moss and cream. For light pink I used Pretty in Pink. For spring moss I used Certainly Celery; and for cream I used Very Vanilla.

I had seen a lot of cute cards that used the spotlighting technique. It has been awhile since I've done spotlighting. I used butterfly punches to create the spotlighting.
