Oops, I missed the Challenge Deadline!

Well, I had made this card for the Your Next Stamp (YNS) Color and Sketch Challenge #14, but I forgot to enter it in time.   I thought I'd go ahead and post it here anyway.  I used colored cardstock from Michael's, as well as some punched butterflies that I had received from a friend, some felt flower ribbon, some glitter tape, and some sparkly enamel dots from YNS.  The sentiment stamp was also from YNS.  I followed both the sketch AND the color requirements for this.

Watt's Up?

This card was made for a challenge for the Sketch and Color Challenge #13 on the Your Next Stamp blog.  I chose to do the sketch challenge.  This is a top fold card made using the Perfect Chemistry stamp set from Your Next Stamp, which I colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits.


 The papers I used were all Recollection brand cardstock from Michaels; I just poked through my scrap folder until I found pieces that were a good match with each other.  The sequins were from the dollar store.  I finished the card by putting clear Wink of Stella on the light bulb, and Glossy Accents on the eyes, shine spots, and metal bottom of the light bulb.  Here's a close up so that you can see the Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.
