Papercraft Star Challenge 61 Color

This card was inspired by the Papercraft Star Challenge 61 to use the colors Aqua, Navy, Red and/or Neutral. I just loved the picture inspiration. It just said outdoor party to me. If you look closely you can see the waves in the paper on the lanterns.
I created the Japanese lanterns with Digital Fabric 2 Inch Circles from the Etsy shop The House Across The Bay. After punching out the circles I ran them through my crimper for the wave texture, then pushed the centers up for a slight dome shape. I glued a small piece of paper towel to the back of each one before adhering to the card front, so it could help retain it's dome shape. I used a piece Navy Baker's Twine for the lanterns to hang from. The sentiment "celebrate" came from Stampin' Up!

Here's the Picture Inspiration for the Papercraft Star Challenge 61 Color Please come over and play along in the challenge. The other designers have created some fabulous works of art too. I'd love to see your spin on this challenge.
