Saturday Spotlight #16: Bigger IS Better!

Stamps: Magnolia, Alota Stamps, Penny Black sentiment. Cardstock: Soft Suede, Barely Banana, Etcetera 'Party', Gina K white. Ink: Memento black, Copics, Soft Suede. Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Bazzill dotted white organdy.

Many of you have probably noticed that Vicki has not been commenting on your entries which is abnormal for her and that her card is not posted here.....Vicki's computer crashed this past week due to a virus. She has had it in for repair but it looks like she won't be able to get back online until next week sometime. Hopefully she will back real soon! We miss you Vicki!!

For this week's Saturday Spotlight #16 challenge.....
The Spotlight Divas would like to challenge you to think "bigger is better"! Use oversized bit items, accessories, images etc. that may even be too large for your card!! Get out all those BIG things and use them!

For our Spotlight sponsor this week we have...
Michelle's scrapbooking and more
(click HERE to go to store.)

**One lucky winner from our challenge in Mister Linky this week drawn from random.org will receive a set of Hannah stamps release by Sandra Hammer which is perfect for A2 cards and a $10 gift certificate from the store!! **

Bigger is definitely better when it comes to cupcakes and wishes! For my card, I also used a 'big' 5 1/2" x 5 1/2 " sized card versus the regular A2 size.

The sketch is inspired by another awesome layout from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #48.
