Mum's Chinese Lantern

It's almost Chinese New Year so I thought I would get on and colour up my 'Chrysanthemum Sprite' from Aurora Wings, as she fits this theme beautifully.    I wanted to make something totally different with her and it took me a while of thinking and mooching on Pinterest before I decided on a lantern shaped card.  
I had a themed wedding with Chinese lanterns as decorations, so it was definitely fun to make one out of card.  The stickers have been with me a long time... I bought them while on honeymoon in Malaysia and don't like to waste them!

Products used:

  • Cardstock
  • Spellbinders Big Scalloped Oval die
  • Mind Wave stickers
  • Distress Ink - Mustard Seed
  • ProMarkers - Black, Cool Grey 5, Raw Sienna, Ginger, Saffron, Oatmeal, Olive Green, Forest Green, Pine, Sunflower, Yellow, Burgundy, Cardinal & Ruby

I am hoping to get some more images coloured and cards made for pleasure this year.  I got rather busy at the end of last year, so I was only making DT cards in the spare time I had.  
As it is coming up to Valentine's Day, I am in the mood for love and this Power Poppy image was just perfect.   It is from the 'Graceful Still Life' digital stamp set, but this image alone was a freebie in the Kit & Clowder advent calendar. 
I have gone CAS to let the image shine.
