  6. Great card and love the bugaboo image. I am so glad you joined us this week at Unscripted Sketches. I hope to see you back next challenge. Congratulations on the camera. Light boxes are so easy to make. I made mine and love it. It's out of poster board so it's so light weight and sturdy. I did vellum inserts on sides & top for my light source to come in. Out door light bulbs shinning through sides and top for good light. I hope this helps you with ideas.

  14. Cute card! I have a tip for you for a light box. I travel and needed one, so I bought one of those collapsible fabric drawers in white. I made a slit on one of the sides and pulled out the cardboard the supports it so that my light can shine through. It seems to work well. Thank you for joining us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches for our special challenge, "Anything Goes"!
