Here's the Design Team:

Welcome to the 3rd day of the April release blog hop.  I hope you are being inspired by the design team's creations. 
Today I am sharing a card I made using the new Lanterns set along with Works of Art.  After stamping all of my images in memento black ink then colored using prismacolor markers along with Tim Holtz distress inks being stippled around the images.  For the final embellishments, I hand drew my own lantern "hangers", spritzed a purple marker over the entire colored panel, added purple ice stickles and added two pre-made bows along with some "faux brads".
Thanks for stopping by today.
Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
