You Brighten My Day {Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge}

Hello and Happy Sunday!

I am popping in today with a card that I created for this week's Picture Perfect SPARKS Challenge.

I was inspired by the lamp and the rolls of washi tape from the inspiration photo to put together this card.  First I die cut the ray panel with my Silhouette Portrait and a piece of white card stock.  I used this cut file resized to 4.25" x 5.5".  Next I covered the ray cut outs with washi tape.  I used 4 types of washi from my stash and I tried to vary the tape pattern for more interest. 

For the focal point, I punched a circle with a 2" circle punch and stamped the lightbulb and sentiment from We Totally Click.  I colored the lightbulb with Copic markers and stamped the heart included in the set a few times with pink ink.  (Oh, and in case you are keeping track, this is another previously unused stamp set, so I am totally counting this towards my "Month of Neglect." Ok, I feel better now.)

Here's a look at this week's inspiration photo:
