Winter Wonderland Lantern

Hi guys, It's freezing here this morning, I'm just back from taking Tegan to school so I'm defrosting!!! lol,😄
I think I told you I recently got my latest Crafteezee collection In The Forest Winter Wonderland kit, so many gorgeous fabulous products again in the collection,  so using some of them I have made this Lantern,
I used a template off my Cameo Silhouette to make the lantern base then decorated the top and base with some of the Studio Light Forest papers from the kit, and some vellum from my stash,
 with some  Sissix die cut trees to the sides on top of the vellum, On the base I added a Magnolia Doo Hickey lovely fence die, onto which I added some script stamping from a Stempelglede stamp,then on the the front section one of the cinnamon sticks, a shabby sprig and a flower, from the kit,
This Tilda is one of my all time favorites and she is coloured with my distress re-inkers, then fussy cut out, adhered only to the base so the main part of the Lantern can be removed,
 On the top I added a snowflake trim die, leaf dies,and yet more goodies from the Crafteeze collection, another shabby sprig, a larch cone, some more of the flowers, and used a little of the ribbon which was tied around the collection as a handle,
The sides are decorated similar using some beaded stamens from my stash,
On the top edges of the main part I added the fabulous Enamel dots which again were in the kit,
Seeing as it's a Lantern I added a battery tea light so it lights up when it gets dark,
This is one of the side views,
