Bird Song Card

Here's my latest efforts using that gorgeous Asian inspired paper from Graphic 45! 

I have wanted to try this design for a while and it SO fits this paper--don't you think?  I got the idea from Heartfelt Creations--check their card gallery, about two or three pages in, it's called a multifold.

The base is about 5 3/4 by 12 inches.  I've seen this in a couple of places and one person made a lovely sleeve to cover the whole card---because it tends not to stay closed :)  The printed paper....I measured every piece to fit.   

The lanterns are cut out, coated with crystal effects and hung on strings. The tassel is hung from two coins I had in my stash.     

The back has space for writing.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to put a 'label' on it but if someone wanted a sentiment, it wouldn't take long to stamp :)

Here it is at an angle (without glare from the window).  The two orangey coloured lanterns are raised on pop-dots. 

Thanks so much for coming by :)
