Spotlight Technique

The house is very quiet at the moment as Matthew,Tasha and grandaughters have gone to Cornwall for a week,they went 5o'clock yesterday morning and came in to give us a kiss and cuddle before they went bless them.They have also got their own house now too and get the keys on the Monday after they come home on the saturday and move in on the 13th,and daughter Helen has also been reconciled with her husband and also moving out-so we are going from seven to two -just me and John(does this mean we have to actually speak to each other now? lol)Luckily they are all just 10mins walk away.
My card today is for the new challenge at 613 Avenue Create "Spotlight Challenge"and this is my first try at this technique and not totally happy with it,not sure if I picked the right image for this technique.The sponsors are-
Sandies samples and Di's Digis.I have used a LOTV rubber stamped image "Little Girls Story time"-I have had this stamp about three years and never used it,I stamped the image twice and cut a circle for the coloured part,faux stitched round the image,the papers are Tim Holtz-crowded attic,tonic border punch and banner die,coloured cardstock from Papermill Direct and added liquid pearls and a gem brad.
