My good friend Meg is celebrating her 70th Birthday this Saturday. I was given the job to make her group Birthday card. Meg is an art collector and loves anything with an Oriental design so hopefully she will like this card. I hope its big enough for everyone to sign, I will get everyone to write really small :). I made this card using a free template that I downloaded sometime ago, I have had it for ages and so happy that I have atlast got to use it, I knew it would come in handy one day. I added the text and printed the lanterns on three different papers that I cut out and stuck onto the background . The pink lantern has been stuck down with dimensional foam squares to make the lantern stand out. I will definitely be using this template again with different colours etc.
This is another card that was inspired by the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger DANCING LANTERNS. I was mainly inspired by the brightly coloured lanterns and like the photo I kept the background uncomplicated (the inspiration photo is in the last post). As I said before I love lanterns and so happy that I was able to take part in this challenge again, can't get enough a good thing. This is also a card that I made for the Moxie Fab card style challenge CLASSY AND ELEGANT. I am also including this in the BIRTHDAY CARD challenge over at Caardvarks.
