Have you ever made a

Oriental Lantern, if not we have a tutorial to go along with
 our challenge at TTSTV this week.
 My mom loves Oriental things so this is going to be for her.
I thought that my piece of dp with all the symbols on it was
the perfect background for my lanterns. I punched out the red one
and if you look closely you can see that I  gold embossed it with the
  peace symbol from the Asian Delight set. I cut out a triangle and
just made some random drops of red and embossed,
 for the third one I cut a rectangle and rounded all the 
corners then stamped with the little symbols from
the Be Virtuous set. All three lanterns were then run thru
the crimper. Doesnt show up much in the photo
but in person they look pretty cool. Tops and bottoms 
and the hanger were added. The beautiful girl is
from the new December Release set called Calm & Wisdom.
I thought just adding her image no coloring was best to go
with the lanterns. The love symbol stamped and
matted on the black is also from the Asian Delight set.

You may be the lucky winner of the great stamp set!
Stop by and give it a go.
