It's time for another challenge from Create with Connie and Mary challenge blog. The colors are nice and bright - sure to drive away some winter doldrums.
Speaking of bright… I am using the lightbulb image found in the Sale-a-braion set called You Brighten My Day.
Sometimes it is difficult to create cards with small stamp images because they can easily get "lost" on a busy card. I chose to keep my layout and overall card simple for that very reason.
For my focal point I stamped the lightbulb and sentiment and then colored and punched them out with a circle punch. Next I added some paper piercing around the circle rather than layer it on card stock. I used dimensionals and added it to the front of my card. The background paper is 2 pieces of paper from the Sale-a-bration series, Best Year Ever. I am loving all of the Sale-a-bration offerings this year! And the best part is they are free!
I puzzled over how to add some more Bermuda Bay to my card. I ended up using the textured strip of card stock across the front and 3 candy dots accenting the circle.
