Now, let me share with you my project.

I knew I wanted to play with this set from Fun Stampers Journey when I found out it was an Asian theme.  These lanterns are so fun to color.  I layered them as well to give them even more dimension.

Supplies Used: Light Up
Paper: Whip Cream Cardstock, Candy Apple Cardstock
Ink: Black Licorice
Pan Pastels: Party Pop
Accessories: Black Licorice Journey Twine
Colored with Journey Color Burst Pencils

I had fun creating this card.   I hope you found inspiration here.
