My card was also a lot of fun to make. I used copper metallic cardstock as the base card. I die cut a postage stamp shape background panel from the metal sheet, dry embossed it, and then sanded the embossed images. Over that I layered a portion of a clock face die cut from grungeboard and painted with antique bronze distress paint. The leaves were cut from a green colored aluminum metal sheet. (All of the dies used are from Tim Holtz.) The stamp (also Tim Holtz) is part of a larger stamp. I used colored pencils to color the image and metallic copper pan pastels for the background.
I am entering my lantern into the challenge at Mark's Finest Paper Friends of Speedy which is use vellum.
