Doing it CAS is always so much fun

I am a huge fan of using inanimate objects on my cards and so I was very excited about the CAS challenge over at CASology this week. I had a lot of inspiration for this card from work, I am employed by  the main electricity company in Sydney and I never thought that this would have an influence on my cards. I had a lady once tell me that I had lit up her world after we restored her electricity after nearly 24 hours of being without electricity, she was the only lady after a long and hard day who managed to put a smile on my face.

This unisex card was designed on Openoffice using a variety of different shapes. I used Trebuchet font for the sentiment. I printed an extra lamp and base of the lamp that was cut out and paper-pieced onto the base of the card. I added my favourite dimensional magic to the lamp and base of lamp.
