H for Hotspot - Anyone Fancy a Tutorial?

I really hope this posts ok as its Scheduled.... Ekkk

This weeks ABC Christmas Challenge sees this years first Designer's Tutorial
this is the first of a few we have planned and Dorte has been brave to step us and do her first Tutorial, please play along its going to be great! And please stop by her blog to show your support too!

OK so then about the Challenge

H for Hotspot
also know as spot lighting

We have the fantastic  sponsor
Here is my card
So what is spot lighting or hot spot I hear you ask?
basically its where you highlight a small area of your image to show it off.
I have chosen this holly image from the Woodware holly set of stamps called Holly swirls I used it a lot last year think its going to get another good airing this year too!
a small amount of colouring and some glossy accents on the berries, some faux stitching and some loveeeeeeeeeeeeely card candy!

hope you like it my card and hope to see you over at the challenge too!
