Here is a nice bright card to brighten your day.  I have coloured the image with promarkers and added some faux stitching around the edge.  I have also added diamond glaze to the lights on the card.  I then stamped and heat embossed the little saying on it.  The corners have been die-cut and embossed.  On the lower part of the card I attached an orange border to go right across the card and attached my sentiment with foam pads after adding three little brads.  Finally I added a couple of threaded buttons.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
