For this week's Saturday Spotlight challenge.....

The Spotlight Divas would like to challenge you to create a nice birthday card. But wait, it's not that simple! We'd like you to also use your birthstone color on the card. Don't know what your birthstone is? We can help -- check out this site HERE.

For our Spotlight sponsor this week we have...

For my card, I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #65 with its great circular focal point. My birthstone is a sapphire, but the color I chose came closer to my favorite Star of Sapphire shade.
