A lantern

Hi everyone,
I'm not posting much these days, my hubby just had a hip replacement and he's a lot of work. I did get one project finished. This one is for The Friday Mashup Challenge.

Heidi wants to see projects for the Chinese New Year's, The mash up is to create a card or project for the Chinese New year Year of the Snake theme or using the faux paper lantern technique or mash them together.
I went for a paper lantern ( not using the technique ) but the snake.

I haven't used my paper lantern die from Sixxiz in a long long time. This was the perfect chance to break it out and dust it off. I used Red satin paper along with scraps of basic black card stock to make the bands. The hanger is gold ribbon and a large gold bead.My images are from Stampin Up and heat embossed in gold. The bottom band as two snakes on it with the same gold embossed lines that are on the top. I guess you could say I did get that paper lantern technique in there, my window blinds are those paper ones. Ha Ha.

I place a tea lite inside the bottom band. The paper doesn't look red when  the little light is on. but it is.
Hope you like my little lantern.
Please stop back again

This is gorgeous, Karen! I love all the gold embossing and the tassel hanging from the bottom. I think you did a fabulous job with the challenge this week.

I hope that your husband is doing well and he starts to feel better soon!

Gorgeous project Karen! I love your interpretation of the challenge. The gold embossing is great and the snake at the bottom of the lantern is a perfect detail. Thanks for playing along with us at the Friday Mashup this week!

your products instead of coping reviews from competitive websites to
show you have circulation and satisfied customers,
your website is more likely to earn higher ranking in the major search engines.
It would be optimum thought to select the local SEO service after checking
the rank of their website. This will not only help you find the best service provider but will help you build

and fresh marketing opportunities. The title is supposed to explain the article, and the title

I believe everything wrote made a bunch of sense. However, consider this, what if
you added a little content? I am not saying your information
isn't good., however suppose you added a title that makes people want more? I mean "A lantern" is kinda vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create post headlines to get people interested.
You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what
you've got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
