Christmas Lantern

     Assuming Beccy doesn't throw us another curve, today should be the letter "L" in the Month of Holidays at Beccy's Place.  I chose a Christmas Lantern from Beccy's store and did a sentiment which has lots of other "L"s in it.  :-D

     I was thinking about candles or other Lights being left in windows as a way of welcoming those who are returning home after an absence.  That was connected to the idea of Love for the person returning so all of those ideas went into the sentiment.

     I colored the image with ProMarkers, specifically using Lemon yellow for the Lamplight from the Lantern.  I cut it with a Link-edge Oval (Unbranded die.)

     I decided that doing Layers would be a Lovely design idea so I started with a Lemon colored card base, Layered on a Lattice die cut (Memory Box) and added a Layer of burlap fabric on top of that.  Finally, I added the image, the sentiment, and one of my hand sewn bows.

Look at all those "L" words... great job NC!! I like the old tradition of leaving a candle in the window too, not that I would ever actually do it, but I like the thought. When my siblings and I were in our 20s my Mum and Dad would always leave a light on outside until we were all home from work or socialising. I guess it's kind of the same thing.
You did a great job colouring the lantern, I particularly like the "glow" of the flame. The little bow is very sweet and the sentiment is lovely. Well done!
