OWH sketch 93 - shine on

Hello blog friends! We've been out of town and I am WAY behind on challenges. Good thing today is Sunday so at least for this one, I don't have to appear behind. :) 

My SIL is having a birthday soon and I just won this stamp in a grab bag. Isn't it GREAT? I saw it and knew I wanted to use it for this sketch. I paper pieced the lampshades and added the bling to the bottoms. I couldn't find a good place for the sentiment so I'm putting on the inside.

DP: Echo Park
Stamp: Unity stamp Co
Glossy accents, random bling from stash

I glossy accented the lampshades, too. It doesn't look too impressive yet, maybe when it dries.  Sorry for the bad photo... gloomy day and my workspace is CRAZY messy. Will try to get a better pic later.

Thanks for looking! Be sure to play along here. :)
