you light up...

Hello, hello!!!  We have been having some beautiful weather in my neighborhood, but apparently it isn't going to last into the weekend...sigh!  Oh well... I have a bright and sunny little card to share with you today.  I made this for the current CASology challenge:  Electric.  The layout is based on the current sketch from Unscripted Sketches.  Also going to pop this into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge:  not so mellow yellow.

When I saw the cue word: electric I was a little bummed.  I don't own any of those cute stamp sets that have little light bulbs in them or any kind of set that would lend itself to the challenge.  But then I remembered that I had just ordered a fun little set from Stampin Up! that would fit the bill and it was going to arrive on my doorstep just in time... YAY!   Once the set arrived I inked it up and got to work.  Because the scale of the light bulb is rather small I decided to make a tag/card (my sweet friend Martha is the master of tag/cards! Go check out her blog, you won't be disappointed!).  I stamped the bulb portion in yellow ink and trimmed it out.  The entire image was stamped in silver, trimmed out and the top portion attached.   Finished off the tag/card with some bright yellow patterned paper, a bit of washi tape and the sentiment.    I have included another photo that shows it really is a tag/card and not just a tag.



 
Thanks for stopping by...
