My eyes fell instantly upon the cluster of paper lanterns. Oh so dreamy! My brother's youngest daughter was married earlier this month under a beautiful arbor. She hung various sizes of round paper lanterns in yellow and white from the cascading canopy of live greenery. There was no decision making for me on this card, I wanted to create that wonderful cluster of lanterns!!!
I started with a shimmery gold card stock to mimic the pretty gold frames in the photo. Next a panel of whitewash paper as my wall/ceiling and then the layers of lanterns I created out of snippets of punched circles and some pink fabric flowers. How lucky I was to have a dream stamp! And finally a tiny felt flower/button combo to anchor the picture! This was so much fun to make and I just love the whimsical feel of these lanterns floating about!
