Christmas Lights, Merry and Bright!

I made a Christmas card with the really fun, cool, new Simon Says Stamp Christmas Bulbs dies, from the Cheer and Joy release...
 I LOVE a number of things about these bulbs!  They have cut out "shadows", separate pieces for the "tops", and a hole in the top for stringing!  What this means for someone like me, who is not the best colorer, is that these bulbs look amazing no matter who you are!!  I die cut and layered the bulbs.  I used a white layer right underneath the colored layer for the shadow.  Then, I had the idea to make the bulbs they're real bulbs.  So, I coated JUST the top colored die cut with Glossy Accents.  I let them dry, then adhered them to the white layer.  I HAD tried glossy accenting the entire bulb, but the glossy turned the white shadows just a little "off", so I ditched all of them, and simply glossied JUST the colored bulb.  I used silver for the tops.  I strung them together with silver thread, and adhered to a panel that I had stamped the new Simon Outline Christmas Bulbs and Simon Merry and Bright sentiment on.  I stamped the sentiment with versa mark and BLACK embossed...was going for a shiny that would compliment the shiny of the bulbs.  Here's a close up...
Oh my goodness...what wonderful fun!!  
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
