Etsy Inspired & JUGs

Quick post today with a card for the current Etsy Inspired challenge and for the current JUGs challenge.   The Etsy inspiration store this week is Glow Girl.  A place where you can get really cute handmade coupon holders, totes and snack bags.   I chose as my inspiration piece this picture showing some coupon holders made using black & white damask fabric.  The holders all have really bright and fun interiors.   I chose to use the bright blue accent color for my card.  


My card is pretty simple and while I liked it I felt it was just lacking in something.   Then I remembered the JUGS challenge to use the spotligh technique.   I think just the little bit of spotlighting to the card provided the finishing touch. 

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI White; SU! Pacific Point; Stamps:  SU! Style Beautiful; Ink:  SU! Pacific Point; PTI True Black; Fiskars Upper Crust punch
