MC Sept/14 - Quill Chinese Lantern - Keep Your Faith - HB

I've been looking for rubber stamp images of Chinese Lanterns and not having much luck... The ones I've been seeing didn't have enough umph for me. Then I came across some Lanterns that were at the tail end of their life and the outside husk is just a beautiful filigree/web like openness.  I also picked up some corrugated cardstock recently and thought it would be perfect for these flowers...

You can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on either card image. Enjoy.

It's gorgeous work Yogi. You're so very talented! It would be a card I'd love to receive.

I do love that skeletonized appearance that some plants get as they wear out. Reminds me I have some leaves... This card popped off the screen and right into my heart, Yogi! Beautiful fall colors, and the corrugated paper gives the quilled parts an interesting effect. Gorgeous stamp inside, too!
