You Light Up My Life

Hello, my crafty friends! I'm happy to share with you today my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #35 - Running In Circles! We're sponsored this time by the awesome Lacy Sunshine Stamps and Scribbles Designs! Come play with us! We want to see your project with circles... they can be punched, die cut, hand-cut, hand-drawn, or part of your paper!

Another one of my favorite color combos is purple and green, so I chose this very cool double-sided paper with a variety of circles - tiny dots, small dots and circle postmarks - for my love card. I also chose the cute Scribbles Designs Light Bulb image because it has several circular characteristics - it's circular when you look down from the top, it has circular wires inside and the circular threads at the base. I also added a couple sets of circular gemstones and some Dot Sparklers which are circular.

I printed the light bulb image and cut it with my Silhouette, and for the most part, left it uncolored. I did color the threads at the base of the bulb with some liquid silver paint. I had a little fun flipping the lower right corner up to reveal the sentiment and the other side of the DP, and used the Fastenater and a green fastener to secure it. And of course, you guessed it, Debby Boone's one-hit-wonder "You light up my life" ran through my head the entire time I was creating this! ;)

I finished the inside with a stamped sentiment that finishes the sentence started on the front! ;)

I'm happy to enter my lovin' you card into the following challenges:
