Brighter Days!

**Be sure to check out my stamps & dies for sale on the Stamps for Sale tab above ! I just updated with new stamps & dies this week!**

Hey all!  How are things going?  It's the weekend!! Yea!! I don't know why this week seemed so long, maybe because it was so busy!  Now I'm putting off working on my garage sale for next Saturday but as soon as I finish this post I've told myself I have to go back to work on pricing and sorting, pricing and sorting...

I wanted to share a card I've been working on.  I LOVE the cute stamp set that is in the April Simon Says kit (that is the first kit I have EVER purchased!).  I don't know what it is about the light bulb image but I love it!  And the font just calls my name too!  I couldn't wait to use it!

I was also excited to play with PTI's Embellished Elegance set!  I know it seems like an unlikely pair but I was inspired by this pin on Pinterest.  



I've seen others like this but how cool are flowers in a light bulb!?

I stamped the light bulb (in hindsight I should have embossed it in black because I had a little trouble with the ink bleeding) and then took out my waterbrush pen and Avery Elle's Sea Glass ink pad to watercolor some water into the bottom of the bulb.  I have to say how much I LOVE these ink colors from Avery Elle!  I was the luckiest girl when I won their entire ink collection!  The colors stamp so beautifully and they are gorgeous!

I was also inspired by all of the flowers that have had black or gray leaves on them lately.  It's a really elegant look! 

I'm entering this card into the Simon Says Stamps Clean & Simple challenge!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed the card!! Have a GREAT weekend!
