GFI trips with lightbulb

So I installed some wall sconces in a bathroom and they are fed from a GFI outlet. THe GFI trips whenever I put a bulb in the sconces but is fine otherwise.

Thanks in advance

You miswired somewhere. Check your wiring at the GFCI, and at the lights.

By the way, did you make sure that it was appropriate to install lights from this RECEPTACLE? It may not have been, and you may have created a code violation.
