Sorry, I'm Not Too Bright - FMS237

Wow! I can hardly believe I'm writing my 250th post already!  I love creating cards and sharing them with you!  I can't wait until I have 250 followers too. (hint, hint) :)

Today I wanted to share with you another sneak peek of a brand new hostess set coming out June 1st called "Pun Intended".  I love the antique tungsten light in the set.  We are 90% done with our bathroom and I purchased a really cute vintage light fixture that has a tungsten light too.  This was right up my alley!

I had an idea with the "Sorry, I'm not too bright" sentiment and I'm pleased with how it turned out.  The sketch came from Freshly Made Sketches - simple enough. :)

I liked the symmetry of the black DSP on each side so I added a piece of Whisper White Baker's Twine for the small grey strip.

I chose to use ink colors from the Brights collection to offset the "not so bright" Smoky Slate bulb.

I used the corner rounder to make the tag a little different and added some embossed strips of Smoky Slate to make the sentiment and light bulb stand out a little more.

This is a really cute set and one that you can get with a qualifying hostess order/party starting June 1st.  If you order $350 worth in June, you earn an extra $35 free!!
