Crafty Sentiments - Spotlight Technique

This week over at Crafty Sentiments Heather is our host and she has chosen a technique for the challenge and its 'Spotlight'.  Now this is the first time I have tried this technique, seen it done and thought 'thats effective must have a go' but thats as far as I ever got! lol  So no more dilly dallying!  For my card I have used a cute new digital image that is available now at Crafty Sentiments Designs and its called 'Snowman Globe'  for my coloured section I used copics and then added 3d crystal lacquer and a slight sprinkling of glamour dust.  I was hoping this would give the impression of a snowglobe when it has just been shaken and the glitter is floating about, I like what I acheived.  For the rest of my card the papers are MME and I added some gold ribbon and bows and stamped the sentiment in gold on a Crafty Cutters Vintage Label die cut also availbable at Crafty Sentiments Designs.
and a close up of the spotlight bit to show you the effect
