Mother's Day Lantern

I was asked to make some cards for a friend of mine so that she can give them as a gift to a young man going off to the service. So the next series of cards I'll be creating today are those that I have been asked to do.
I saw this how to on Flowerbug's Inkspot and just had to make the Japanese Lantern.

Rather simple procedure - Cut a 3" circle with my Coluzzle. Stamps the flower image from SU, added some glitter pen highlights. Inked the edges and ran it through the crimper to give it the paper folded effect of a real lantern. Cut two strips of gold glitter cs at 1 1/4" x 1/2". Raised it on foam squared on the red base card with a layer of black CS. I used a MS border punch on the bottom and the inside of the card.

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges
Paper Cutz #75 any theme and colors
Cute Card Thursday - was 1 2 3 - so I used one gold threading, two stamp images and three pearls
And I used the layout from Clean & Simple

Sheryl, what a wonderful card!!! And, I love that you do such cards for these special occassions/situations!!! You are a special person!

Sheryl, I notice sometimes you find so many "any goes" type challenges and if I enter a challenge those are the kind I love to enter. I'm thinking as I haven't entered a challenge in a long time, I might enter something on one of the above -- don't know yet, but I'm thinking about it! Anyway, thanks for always sharing so much!!!

Hugs, sweetie!
