merry & bright...

Hey friends!!  Well... it is still wet, wet, wet here in the PNW!  The Seahawks are supposed to play a home game today so hopefully the rain will let up by this evening!!  Anyway... have a card to share for a few challenges:  Merry Monday (just squeaking in with this one!), Freshly Made Sketches and the Paper Players (clean and simple Christmas card).  On Friday I got another set of stamps and dies from Concord & 9th, as well as some fun sequin trim that they are now selling.    This set is called Shine Brighter and included a light bulb and multiple images that you can use inside the light bulb!  For my card I used the light bulb along with several other images from the set.  Originally I was going to die cut the light bulb, but decided to simply stamp the light bulb on die cut square and then die cut the light bulb 'top'.  After stamping the top in pink ink a length of silver sequin trim was adhered to the top before adhering the piece to the light bulb.  Kinda looks like my light bulb is wearing a scarf, lol!!  The inside was stamped with a little tree image and then over stamped with another image from the set.  I added some Diamond Stickles around the tree to give a bit of frosty snow look.   Additional squares were die cut from pink and green cardstock and then the green one was partially embossed.  I also added a bit of embossing to the light bulb once the stickles had dried... love that partial embossing!!  Layered everything up and then added the sentiment on a little banner.




Thanks for stopping by today...
