Sending You Sunshine with Lantern Rin

In past years, the holidays have always worked out for us, as the Smiths celebrate Christmas on the Eve and the Bliatouts celebrate on Christmas Day.  This year, my parents decided to go down to California (where most of my dad's family live) and also go to Hmong New Years.  My family flies out tonight, so I will opening gifts wee early with all of my siblings today.

With this card, I started with Mercy's sketch challenge...and then it just didn't work out.  I liked how the tone on tone stitching with the green came out, but I regret not stitching the bracket boarder with navy.  Oh, well...guess it doesn't always turn out right, lol.

Paper: Basic Grey Olivia
Stamps: Sparkle Creations, sentiment is A Muse
Prima Flowers, BG Buttons, Nestabilities, Crystal Stickles, Copics, BG Brads, and Rhinestones
