Back to Basics - Spotlight Technique

Time for another challenge at Back to Basics Challenge blog,   this is slightly different challenge this time,  we would like to see Spotlight Techniques.

Here are some links for inspiration  Pinterest link
       and You Tube link

My card I did something slightly different I used a CD and printed the image in black and white and then again in colour,  I matted the black and white on silver card,  and cut two ovals out in different sizes and matched up the coloured images onto the black and white card.  I used the backing paper from the CD.   I used A walk in the countryside Cd by Creative Crafting,    I wanted to show you that CD's can be very versatile,  and just added a ribbon to match.

We would be delighted to see you are there is a the Back to Basics and beyond challenge blog and here is a link to the blog
