You Make My Life Brighter

lifebright

Hello!  I hope you had a great long weekend!  I know I sure did!

Today’s card is my first one using the Shine On! set from Unity.  I stamped the lamp and greeting in Palette Landscape which paired quite well with the sage faux suede ribbon.  I used my new Labels 8 Nesties to cut the ivory piece, the greeting tag and the designer paper.  This card does not do the DP justice.  It is from the new Upsy Daisy line A Walk in the Park and I am loving it.  It’s got some really great tree and nature patterns and is pretty versatile and could even work with masculine cards.  (Their Man About Town collection is really masculine.)  But anyway, I used the backside of this paper and like the simplicity of the pattern.  It reminds of old wallpaper.

I used my craft knife to make a slit under the post of the lamp and slid my ribbon under there.  I also added some small gems to the lampshade for some sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by!  I’ll be back tomorrow with some news for you so be sure to stop by!
