Japanese Lanterns

I love this image of lanterns by Lawn Fawn, and I decided to stamp it on patterned paper that had an Asian style flower design.  I would love to hang some of these out in my garden or on my porch this summer, the soft light they make is so beautiful.  I limited the color palette to a few shades of orange to take part in the Lawnscaping "Color Splash" challenge.  

I'm also posting in the Less is More Paper Piecing Challenge and the Scrapalicious USA "What Do You Do in the Summertime?"

Thanks for stopping by!
