18th century vintage

When I first started playing around with paper crafts, I saw so many beautiful vintage/Victorian goodies. Of course, I usually bypassed those challenges as they were way out of my comfort zone. After all, I still consider myself very green. I got to thinking, my grandmother used to have all these things in her home: lamps, furniture, knickknacks.  All of them Victorian/vintage. I dreamed of having them for myself some day. So, in memory of so many years ago, I decided to challenge myself. It's not exactly how I envisioned it but I'll take it.

this is a lantern pattern that I've added images from Art by Jean. I've added some old chunky beads and a bit of ribbon. The Fleur is from spellbinders and I've added some gem and pearls to jazz them up

I'm going all out and enter into some challenges:
Simon Says: Anything Goes
Sparkle: New Craft Goodies
Paper Craft Star: Victorian
