Fairy lantern

Good afternoon fellow crafters 

In all my time (many years) in crafting I've never had a desk to craft on.  I've always used the sofa, laptray and recently my bed lol.  

It was my birthday Saturday and I asked for a desk and chair for my crafting.  I'm absolutely so happy I now have a solid surface with my crafting supplies in storage next to me , a tv to watch whilst crafting and a comfortable chair.  It's so nice to sit and craft on a solid surface lol.  So thank you mom I truly appreciate it. 

My first project using my brand new desk is this beautiful lantern.  It's a die from tattered lace called "East meets west". I combined another fairy die from tonic on 2 panels instead of the normal die usually used for this lantern.  You can buy this die here: 

Card stock is from create and craft core collection.  Fabulous quality cardstock. 
Flowers are from different sets of tattered lace dies. 

I used 2 fairy dies to add onto it.  One is from poppy crafts and the other from tattered lace called star flower fairy

The paper I used for the inside of the lantern is gold textured paper from tonic.  It gives of a beautiful warm glow when you place a battery operated candle inside 

Gems are from my crafty stash

Hope you like this one

Fabulous lantern and beautiful dies---can I just say don't get used to your desk because soon it will become full of bit and bobs and unused dies you will still be crafting on the bed/floor or bedside cabinets and I know this because ??? don't even ask lol

Happy belated birthday, Sharon! What a fabulous project to break in your new crafting desk. Truly love the dies you've used and it's gorgeous whether lit or not. Good luck on avoiding clutter. I'm getting such a kick out of everyone's comments. You can't even walk in my craft room and every available solid space is filled. LOL xxD
