CS Designs. As soon as I saw this image the design did literally "Splash" out at me - I love all the elements on it!! I just knew I wanted to make something totally different with it - not just a card - so I decided a lantern to "show off" the design and the colours would be the way to go. It just looks beautiful and bright (like a stained glass window) with the candle light shining through and I am so happy with how it has turned out. I have included several photos below to show how the shade looks in daylight and in the dark with a candle inside. And by the way they are jelly beans around the base and I have to tell you I was popular with my family as I let them eat the jelly beans after I took the photos!!
