You Light up my Life


Today I've made a card for the Allsorts Challenge #304 - which is to "feature a creature." Deedee's digis is sponsoring this challenge, so I'm using 2 of her digi sets to make this card - the "Goody Jar" set, as well as "Little Light." I put the firefly in the jar and colored everything with Copics, adding a little heart-shaped mint green brad to the printed bow. I added some bright yellow stickles to the firefly's bum, and printed the sentiment from the free digi set "Little Light" and matted everything with orange cardstock. The foiled dsp was found at a Tuesday Morning store.

Deedee's March progressive challenge is rapidly drawing to a close, so if you've made a card, please share it with the links so you can have April's free digi emailed to you next month!

Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!

This is oh so cute, Carol. Love that this little fellow is in the jar.

I saw fireflies for the first tie a couple of years ago when we were in the Carolina's. They are so amazing!

Isn't there some poem about how it is hard to glum, when you have a light in your bum? Anyway, it is hard to be glum with this sweet card around!

Now this is super cute! Love the paper-piecing you did with the lid. All the patterns go well together and of course your coloring is delightful.

Oh Carol this isn't funny after being stung by Hubby's bees on Sunday. Had to visit Doctor this afternoon!
This is very cute though. Well done.
