Lighting the darkness

Today's card is one of those made for the Crafty Templates September kit - yes, I've just realised that I've only remembered to blog one of them so far - so you can see one HERE and there's one more left for tomorrow....hehe
I was very much in a CAS mood with the last lot of templates - the images, along with the fab papers and other elements from the Quirky Kit (also available from Crafty Templates) just seemed to work really well on a clean white smooth card.

What better for a card with Chinese lanterns on than a Chinese proverb for the sentiment, which I kept simple by printing directly onto the card, roughly in the place I wanted it to be before adding the baker's twine and lanterns
I Used:
Smooth white card blank
All templates and papers from Crafty Templates
Black Bazzill card, black gel pen, Baker's Twine,
pc generated sentiment

That's it for today, I hope you like it

I really love this card Kathy. It's so simple an idea but really intricate when you look at the lanterns. It's wonderful.

No flowers? Love the way you've strung the lanterns at an angle and the saying is just perfect.
