A Friend is a Joy (Item Id#1131)


Happy weekend to all you lovely people out there!!

Today I want to share my GD card for Challenge Up Your Life. The challenge for the next 2 weeks is to use a resist technique and I really found it interesting. For my card I used the Crayon Resist Technique and I used it to color the flowers on my card. The center of the flowers was first filled in with crayons and then I inked up the flower(freebie from MARJORIE) using sponge. The crayon filled part resisted the color. I did the same with leaves. (enlarge to see details). 


The sentiment is handwritten as always. I want to play along a few more challenges with this card. The first being Sentimental Sundays - Someone Special (Friends are always special people in our lives) and the next is Lili of the Valley - Here comes Summer (the colors and flowers certainly speak summer in my card)

Hope you like 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.

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)
