Bring On The Sun



It's Saturday Spotlight time...This week we were challenged to make 
a card that let the SUN shine in...Nothing better than a bright sunny 
day for bikini weather..LOL
As soon as I saw the challenge I thought of this bikini card I learned 
to make at a Stampin Up Stamp Camp a few years ago.. I used creamy 
carmel cardstock and then found some  yellow polka dotted designer 
paper in my stash. Used my circle and flower punches to make the 
bikini.  I took some ribbon and braided it for the straps.  Of course 
I had to give her a little belly bling..

Here is the info for this week's challenge:


The Spotlight Divas would like to challenge you to LET THE SUNSHINE IN!!  Since we want to be done with all those wild snowflakes from last week, we thought this week we would ask you to get your bright colors or use mostly "yellow" or monochromatic yellow for your creations this week!  
 (The theme fits perfectly with our sponsor for this week!) 


For our Spotlight sponsor this week we have...
