Flower in Blue (Item id #1110)

This is the first time I will be entrying in a challenge and what better way to start with Card Patterns weekly card sketch challenge . I prepared this card for Card Pattern sketch 50 but now it fits with PTI Contest #13 as well. Thats a real bonus !! 

I hadn't used blue color in my cards for a while and when I saw my supplies I immediately knew that for this sketch I want to use blue.


The paper flower in the middle is inspired by Joanne's paper flowers. I know my flower is not even close to what she does but never the less I gave it a try :)
And again notice the use of old newspaper to create a background. As I told you before you we will seeing a lot of recycled material put to use in my cards.
The dark blue patterned paper that I used was a bit of gaudy and overpowering .So to balance the colors I made use of light hues of blue. Then glued blue stones to add a tinge of richness to the card.
Hope you liked it !! Thanks for visiting !!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 


Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching


Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.

Birthday Explosion Box!

Here is something that I am very proud of. This was my first attempt at a 3D paper cake and I adore how it turned out. More loved because I am not really a pink girl and this explosion is all pink and I still love it :)

I am entering this for the Lessology Challenge#29 - Birthday Party Lulupu Challenge#17 - Fancy Me (I fancy special fold cards and I fancy trying out new things) Itsy Bitsy Challenge - Pretty with Pink (Pink, pearls, pattern papers, posy, paper clips, photographs)
