The Warm Glow.....

Hello everyone: This week over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we have a new challenge for you to have some fun with. The theme is "You Light Up My Life" which means we want you to use any kind of light source image on your cards.  It could be a lamp, flash light, lantern, etc. you get the picture. Here is the card I made to hopefully inspire you to join my teammates and I in the gallery.

This pretty image is from my old stash of Flourishes sets and it's called "S'more Fun".  I stamped it with Stazon black ink onto a die cut piece of water color paper and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils. I applied a bit of Hello Honey with a sponge dauber for the glow.
The background is done with the retired SU embossing folder called "Woodland", I applied a thin coat of Baked Brown Sugar to the side that is not raised and ran the card stock through the Big Shot.
I sponged a bit of Broken China between the trees for a sky and I stamped and die cut the little Cardinal Birds with a teeny tiny cardinal die from a collection from Paper Tray Ink called "All Through the House".  The sentiment is from the Flourishes set, stamped onto Vellum.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment and corner flowers are from a Power Poppy set called Sunny Harvest, stamped with Hello Honey ink.

I hope you come and play along with us over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, don't forget to visit the blogs of my teammates for even more inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
