Something Old Something New

Hello again. I've got two projects to show you today. First up is a card featuring one of my earliest LF acquisitions called Lunar Lights. I bought it way back in early 2012 to make Chinese New Year cards.  This set has been neglected and forgotten for far too long and it's about time it saw the light of day! (sorry, couldn't help it! lol) The perfect comeback would be a spot in the Lawnscaping Challenge #133: Mood Board.

I'm keeping this card really simple by picking the colours from the mood board to create a light and  fresh card.

I paper pieced the lanterns and added lots of Clear Wink Of Stella for some shimmer.

My second project is for Tag You're It #51. The inspiration for this challenge is a lovely tag by Donna Mikasa. Here's my tag, featuring stamps from the Dahlia Blossoms by Altenew. I'm also going with Donna's colour palette.

I've used Lawn Fawn Inks: Wild Rose, Guava and Lobster for the Dahlia; Celery Stick, Jalapeño and Freshly Cut Grass; and Butter and Sunflower for the yellow flower.And of course tons of Clear Wink of Stella.
