I knew I wanted to do a card with ChibitronicsLED stickers  after watching Jessica Frost Ballas make her night sky. I started my card by blending Tim Holtz distress inks to make my grass and night sky. Then I used Hero Arts Mason Jar Bugs to stamp my jar and net on Vellum. I colored them with Copics. Next I cut a piece of white card stock to fit the jar but not the neck of the jar. I stamped the fireflys from the samp stamp set on this card stock and colored them with Copics one of which was a neon yellow. I also colored the rest of this piece with a shade of purple. 

My other fireflys are heat embossed and so is the sentiment. 
To put the finishing touch on this card I poked a hole at the base of 2 of my fireflies and wired my LED lights on another piece of card stock matching them up to the holes. I put foam tape where the connector tape was not and put the panel on the back of the card front. 

My next card I stamped my shark images from Avery Elle Hello Chum whith Brutus Monroe Detail Ink and colored them with Copics. The main part of my card front was made using Tim Holtz wood grain paper and Tim Holtz Distress Crayons. I colord lightly over the surface with the crayon then spritzed with water and rubbed with a paper towel. Using some MFT dies I cut my porthole, life preserver and Anchor. I decided my anchor was too light and sprayed it with Distress Mica spray. I loosely braided some jute to make a rope for my anchor 

For my final card I chose MFT Mon Cheri stamp set and Eiffel Tower, Lamp and Poodle CottageCutz. I colored my images with Copics and heat embossed my sentiment. I used pattern papers as my background. Lets not forget the silver string as the leash.

I really love how these cards turned out and
