Card with Spotlight Technique

I usually do not post on weekday but today is an exception. I had some time in hand and made this card using spotlight technique.

First I stamped the image of the flowers from Inspired By Stamping stamp set. Then highlighted the topmost portion of the image using another piece of cardstock overlapping the underlying image.
Using a pen created faux stitching on both the highlighted panel and the base cardstock.
Background is created using ghosting technique with versamark resist. Those little hearts are from SSS Heartfelt Notes set. Coloring is done by Tim Holtz distress ink and sentiment is from Mudra stamps using Memento tuxedo black ink.

Mounted this on a green card base.

Usually spotlight technique has highlight on a very small portion of the image and mine is almost 50% of the image still I wanted to make it this way.

A closer view

Do let me know your thoughts on my wok it helps me a lot.
