Little Lantern and Flowers.

There's a very beautiful photo for The Ribbon Reel challenge #39. We are just asked to create a card using the colors in the photo plus ribbon / twine / burlap and make it shabby. I chose one cute little lantern of the Waltzingmouse Little Lanterns stamp set. I made a burlap and felt heart and the vellum doily is made with the Dainty Doilies 2 set. There are also two layers made with the Spellbinders Marvelous Squares dies. I used one of the Fancy Framed Tags Two die to hang the lantern with twine. I added some ribbons and lace and the layer under them is made with the Way Out West stamp set. I clear embossed it. I also made three flowers and two leaves. The leaves are made with the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms die. Just stitched the edges and added a few rhinestones to finish it off!




Here's the beautiful inspiration photo that Fran chose for this challenge:


This card is also just perfect for the Waltzingmouse Challenge #120 so this is my second card for this challenge.
