Today at Sweetstamps we have a new challenge called Spotlight. You do not have to use a Sweetstamp image but if you do you will receive 2 chances at a 20.00 dollar shopping spree. 
For this card I stamped the teapot on memento black ink pad and colored the image with copic stretch markers. I embossed the white  card stock with  the heart embossing folder.
