FINALLY! I have been thinking about this challenge since Jen posted it...too busy to actually do it. So I stayed up way past bedtime to get it done! This is one of those cards where you try something, then something else, and another something else and then go back to plan A!
Bought those metal magic tags eons ago --HAD to have them, have used maybe ONE (two now!) thought the lightbulb image would go well on one. Embossed with white EP and colored with metallic pencils, buffed and repeat. Everything is on dimensionals (sentiment on doubles!) Electrical tape (??) adhered to copy paper and crumpled for texture. Once I got the frayed cord on the tag, I though *this is too much* but wasn't about to remove it (it was a pain to work with!).
DH has a thing with lightbulbs (he buys the expensive ones and is really funny about them...they have a blue tint so that is what inspired this color combo--that and the papers have been on my desk for a few weeks to try together!) and this is for his graduation (technical MBA) in 2 weeks!
