Robin, it's lovely! The red and gold is so perfect for an Asian feel, the crane too. And I really like the narraow strip of gold on the base layer.
Thank you for your sweet Christmas card, sorry, I never had the computer on yesterday or the day before... but it did arrive on Christmas Eve.

Wow Robin, this is absolutely gorgeous! I love how you stamped these wonderful birds onto the lantern before you crimped it- this is brilliant. Your color combination with the shimmery gold is just stunning! Hugs! ~Karen.

Sorry for chuckling about the straight crimps. I know EXACTLY what you mean since I've never had them straight either. But this is SO perfect for your Japanese lantern, Robin! And yours looks straight to me! You haven't seen mine. What a fabulous design!
