Flourishes Paper Piecing Challenge 240

Hi Flourishes Fans! Come take a peek at my challenge entry for this week's Flourishes Paper Piecing Challenge 240. This week is special because some winners will have the chance to guest design for Flourishes Stamps in December. Oh, I would so love to! All the detail are here if you would like to give it a go!
Flourishes will pick 3 designers and then a 4th will be a "people choice" so please vote for me starting Oct. 8th, 2013! 

I started with an A2 size card base using PTI card stock and added a PTI card stock mat. Basic Grey Konnichiwa 6x6 paper was used, the largest mat inked with Distress Ink in Vintage photo and the 2 smaller mats were stitched with brown thread. A brown scalloped circle was die cut and layered under a white circle die cut. A sentiment was stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink in the center of the die cut and some Pink PTI ink was sponged around the perimeter while the paper was still in the die. 
From the Flourishes Pinwheels and Popsicles stamps set, the paper lantern stamp was stamped on Neenah white card stock with Memento Tux. Black ink and cut out. Each lantern style was stamped again on various colors of patterned paper, cut out and adhered to the white base. A C1 Copic maker was used to highlight the shapes and a few gems were used for sparkle. Lastly, the prepared lanterns were popped up with foam tape and the ends were adhere to the card with Glossy Accents. The Twinery (my favorite twine) turquoise bows were added. (made with the bow easy tool).

Thanks for visiting today! Kim :)
