Paper Lantern... dust off the rust!

Wha???  I know what you're thinkin'...  that I'm actually posting something crafty!  lol
Believe me, I feel the same way.  It's amazing how rusty I felt yesterday when I made this card.  No school busses were running yesterday with a winter storm warning over the area, so I stayed home with Cole.  I was able to do a little cleaning and laundry, look online for 3-4 hours for good pricing on faucets and sinks, ect, plus even get a couple of cards made.  Oh, and I even got supper cooked!  What an awesome day!  I'll share my other card I made either tomorrow or the next day.  Gotta spread it out a little, since I don't know when I'll get the chance to play again.  ;)

I love this new Paper Lantern stamp set!  It's full of really cute images.  "Celebrate" is from a must have new set of sentiments called Card Chatter - Birthday

My card is a little busy for me.  I think if I were to re-make it, I'd change out the star patterned B&T for the simple Sky blue B&T from the Fanfare Level 2 paper pack.  That would tame it down a bit. 

Happy creating!  :)
