Kylie's International Blog Hop - Campology & Free As A Bird stamp sets

Hello, thx for visiting!

Today's post is for Kylie's International Highlights Blog Hop.  If you like my card I'd love for you to vote for me, if I'm one of the winners I will join Kylie's International Blog Hop at the end of the month - oh so much inspiration!     *Please click on the vote for me button below to go directly to Kylies's International Highlights gallery and vote by clicking on the little heart in the top right corner of my card :) thx so much! 


 I love this sentiment in the Campology stamp set, and I love combining fonts, so I chose the 'thank you' from the Free As A Bird stamp set.

I hope this card inspires you to create something beautiful and send it to someone to brighten their day :)

Here's the card details:

The sentiment is on a 1 x 2 3/8 piece of Basic White with a smidge of the lantern base, then raised on dimensionals to align with the base of the lantern.

 The three accent strips of dsp are from the In Good Taste dsp pack.  Both banners are punched with the Banner Triple punch and measure  3/4 x 4 1/4 & 3/4 x 4.  The top strip is 1/4 x 4 1/4.

I stamped the lantern in Memento Black Ink and used a sponge dauber with So Saffron to colour the lantern, then used Blending Brushes to create a soft glow around the lantern on a 3 15/16 x 5 3/16 Basic White layer.

The card is placed on a 4 x 5 1/14 Basic Black layer then on a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Basic Gray card base.

Enjoy & have a super day!
