Number Twenty-seven

For project #27 I decided to try a luminary. I was at a local Dollar Tree and found these little LED tea lights.

I cut a piece of vellum and formed it into a circle. Using my Cricut with the Lyrical Letters cartridge and Gypsy, I spelled out "Survivor" and used the "weld" feature to connect all the letters. All that was left was to decorate it with scraps of paper, flowers and bling.

I tried coloring the bulb with a Copic marker so it would cast a pink glow but it didn't work. My husband says that it's still cute and that we should use it for a night light in the bathroom.

This is what it looks like without the tea light. I'll be adding this to Link Up For Pink also.
