Spotlight...on Remembering the Past

Hello, Friends.  Welcome to my blog.  Today's card focuses on the spotlight technique.  I used dry embossing for the background, heat embossing for the collage images, and popped up 3 areas for spotlighting.  Who can resist butterflies?  Not me. It was created as a birthday card for a dear friend who is 87 years young.  I am still searching for the perfect sentiment for the inside of the card.  Hope you (and she) like it! 

I will try to enter this card in the following challenges:
•  613 Avenue Create - W - Anything Goes (optional: Birthday)
Challenges 4 Everybody - 2W, 3E - (2nd week) Always Anything Goes 
• Robyn`s Fetish - W -CHALLENGE # 168 - "THINGS WITH WINGS"
