Lights are on, no-one's home!

ooh 'eck, I forgot my friends Birthday at the weekend, even though she'd invited me to go and see Mama Mia with her to celebrate. Definitely a case of the lights are on but no-one's home for me at the moment.

Use It had the perfect challenge for me for this card as I already knew I wanted to use this image, I just wasn't sure how. The challenge was to use pink, scallops and a tag:

Pink Petticoat image and papers, nestabilities, ribbon
I love this paper from Pink Petticoat qnd as you know I also love pink! I used it for the background and did a spot of paper piecing on the lamp with it too. The bit I struggled with was the tag, the sentiment is great, it's also from PP but I couldn't find the right placement for it on the card. Eventually I went around the edge with a black Copic pen to make it stand out and placed it mainly against the white background.
The photo is a bit dull as there's no sun today and not much hint of daylight either, so dull and very, very wet. Hoping it brings the pollen count down.
Thanks for all your comments on the Father's Day card yesterday, I was expecting you all to pull faces at it so it was a nice surprise I made so many of you giggle!
