Year of the Sheep Blog Hop

Welcome back today for the 2nd posting of the Sisters Stamps second release of the Zodiac Stamp sets: The Year of the Sheep. The Sheep image is being release at this same time as the Year of the Monkey on February 1, 2013. I chose a "Side Step Card", tutorial can be found at Split Coast stampers here.  The Asian Lantern is from the Silhouette Store here. Pattern paper used is from My Little Shoebox Aiko - Festival. I was so concerned about the lanterns being shown but in the end, it got all covered up with other images.  
The Asian Lantern mat is cut using My Little Shoebox Aiko - Lipstick & Sage solid paper matching the Aiko Collection with White card stock. The Sheep Kanji on the lantern is cut using SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot) from an image on line . Blue card stock from Recollections paper pack. The entire lantern is popped with foam squares. natural twine is used as the finishing touch through the lantern top.
The removable note card is 2-3/4" x 4" using the My Little Shoebox Aiko - Festival paper. A blue mat and message printed using of course, blue ink from my computer Chinacat Font style. Those cute little lanterns were scraps cut from the My Little Shoebox Aiko - Festivals paper, popped with foam squares.
Side view of card:
Sister's Year of he Sheep copic color details: E34, E31, E42, R20, W1. Cut , then popped with foam squares. Martha Stewart Grass punch in SU Certainly Celery used across the front bottom edge.

CUTE! Love the bright 'n festive colors on this card and how you made this so the note card is "removeable"-great idea! BTW, is the fence a die or a silhouette cut?
