Merry Monday #48 A light bulb momment

Hello there,
well I squeezed in the time to do the Merry Monday challenge again this week - a colour challenge. A rather nice but unusual combo!

Funnily enough I ended up CAS but started out with a completely different idea - had the stamps, dies and everything out ready to go, then totally changed my mind.

Since my Mr nearly 5 has kindly shared his cough with me I'm going to keep this short and sweet. I need to recoup as much energy as possible to deal with the joint birthday festivities we are holding for my delightful offspring this weekend!!

The stamped panel is mounted up on dimensionals lifting it up just that wee bit above the embossed sentiment. And yes that is the glint of crystal effects you see shining on the bulbs above, I just had too ;)

Thanks for visiting,

Recipe: All SU! unless otherwise noted
Stamps: Holiday Lights (PaperTrey Ink)
Cardstock: Basic Grey, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Basic Grey, Pumpkin Pie, Marina Mist, Versamark
Accessories: Fillable Frames #4 die (PTI), White embossing powder, Jewels- rhinestone, Crystal effects, Dimensionals, Double sided tape (X Press)
