When the lantern caught my eye, I had a mental image of a bouquet of flowers around the lantern. So I ran to my stash and very surprisingly did not have a lantern die. I let the idea go and moved on. Later, I was at Hobby Lobby for absolutely nothing related to crafting, but I can't be in Hobby Lobby without wandering a bit. It turns out the dies were 40% off and guess what? Their Momenta brand had a lantern die!! It was a Christmas set - but I just needed the lantern. I think it was meant to be.
The flower center was a fun find when I was cleaning out my stash. I've probably had these Dress It Up Fun Dots Brown for a decade or more, but they were buried deep under the embellishment stash. Since it was coming into fall when I re-found them, I knew they were destined for sunflower centers!!
I hope to see you playing along with us over the next two weeks at The Card Concept.
