Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Spotlight

This week over at Crafty Cardmakers it's Spotlight week. And this week we are spotlighting the Spotlight technique where byyou highlight a small section of your card in some way. I have this great sentiment stamp that says 'You are unique' and it gave me the idea for my DT card. I stamped the Penny Black animals (from Critter Party) onto white card and then watercoloured one with Whispers Pens (and a bit of Sakura) and gave it a Nestability cut frame to Spotlight it. I backed it with blue card which has been punched with Martha Stewart Scallop Dot punch. The DP is from Papermania Venetian Skies, the blue flower from my stash and the white flower from Wild Orchid.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Something old (Penny Black stamps), something new (Martha Stewart Punch), something borrowed, something blue (DP paper and card)
Simon Says - Summertime Blues
