Today I've got something totally different to share with you all
and I really hope you'll like it!
It's not often that I share the work I do at my day job here on my blog,
but we got these cool new lanterns in and I just had to make
some Christmas arrangements with them.
I thought they turned out pretty, so I snapped some pics to share.
This one was my first attempt.
I used lots of branches, pretty red and white chevron ribbon
paired with a narrower snowflake ribbon, and added red berries
and a cardinal in a nest as my focal element.
For my second one, I wanted to go a little more elegant,
so I used lots of gold and silver accents, with some cream and white
elements including bulb ornaments and pointsettias.
Both lanterns have a battery operated candle inside.
You don't want to use a regular candle unless you had no plans to light it,
since the decorations are definitely flammable.
I'm really curious to hear what you guys think. :)
I know you come here looking for card inspiration,
but I hope you don't mind a break from that this once. :)
Have a great day!
