Paper Lanterns Card

This week at H2H is a sketch challenge.  This is the sketch, and my creation:

I've been itching to use the new Paper Lanterns stamp set, and decided to use this as my opportunity.  I stamped the red lantern a few times and then punched it out using the 1.25" circle punch (which was a perfect match!).  Then I stamped the back side, folded the image to find the center line, and cut slits halfway up, so I could create my "3D" lantern.
It's a little hard to tell, but I stamped the tassle on white cardstock and then cut it out.  I cut in between the fringe, so it has a little 3D touch to it, too.

The border on the top and the bottom is from the A Little Everything stamp set.  The papers and ink are Dutch Blue, Tulip, Sunflower, and Black.  You can't tell from the photo, but the cluster of three small circles is made up of Sparkles from the Red, Pink, Purple Assortment.
