Side Effects of Marriage :)

yeah thats what I am talking about today :D 
- The biggest one is that you hardly get time to craft
- You only get to post on fridays even if you have the card ready for the whole week
- You start to forget which challenge ends when and you miss the dates :D
 And that is what happened with this card. I made it for GS#50 and forgot to post it in time :(

The poppies are colored using Sketch pens and I applied some glossy accent on it (it isn't really visible in the pic). I hand drew the pattern in the background and tried creating ribbon ruffles for the first time and it worked :)
The colors are from Cards And More Challenge #6 (atleast i am in time for this one :))

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.
