Hi everybody! This challenge was a LOT of fun for me and honestly, I don't think I've ever used fabric on a card before. Is that crazy? I chose to stamp simply and kept the base of the lamp blank and let the lamp shade do all the talking. Instead of paper piecing with paper, I did a little fabric piecing. How fun! I stamped the lamp shade from Lighten Up in Staz-On jet black ink and then cut it out and placed it over the base. I did paper piece the little rose and leaves on the shade since my markers were bleeding on the fabric. I also cut out some fabric scallops underneath the ribbon, which make an elegant statement.

I hope you'll play along this week! Have fun with this one!
