De-LIGHT-ful Birthday Wishes - Unity FWF

Good Friday morning! Is anyone else confused on what day it is? With Christmas, I think my Wednesday felt a lot like a Monday, so it seems kind of strange to have it be Friday already! But I don't mind in the least - especially since it also means it is time for Unity Friends with Flair! Always a fun part of the week for me! Here is what I made this week:
I drew some of my inspiration this week from the Runway Inspired Challenge:


I pretty much was dying to use that awesome light bulb stamp from the new December KOTM, so I started there, then started looking for colors and such from the inspiration photo.
I used some older Cosmo Cricket papers from my stash, and paper pieced the light bulb on a frame cut with a Spellbinders Die. Added some touches with a Copic marker, and inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen. 
Used another Spellbinder's Die for the frame behind, also inked with the same distress ink.
Ran some Chevron Washi Tape along the card, before attaching the frame with the light bulb with foam adhesive. 
For the sentiment, I hand trimmed a banner, then inked most of it with black ink, and colored in "LIGHT" with a Tim Holtz distress marker. Also inked the edges before attaching with foam adhesive.
Finished off with some green self adhesive pearls for the final touch. I LOVE this fun stamp - and know I will be using it lots in the future! Thanks for stopping by - have a wonderful weekend!!!
