Diwali Cards continued...

Happy weekend to all the wonderful people out there!! Hope you are having a good time. Today I am again sharing some Diwali cards with you all. I will start with more of the paper pleated candles for Moxie Fab World - Perfectly Placed Pleats Challenge.

As I said in my last post I experimented a lot with pleated candles. Hope now you have a better idea about what I meant :D

Next card is for Smita's Challenge at Yvonne's Blog - Ribbon technique & No Stamping. Since I am making Diwali cards with candles on them these days, I thought I will give a try to something new. And here it is

See, I made candles with ribbon stitching and hand drew the candle flames and the sentiment. I picked the colors from DieCutDreams#70 - Orange and Pink for this one. What do you say? You Likey?

Last but not the least, I am re-posting my first Christmas Card for Amy's Flashback Friday 4.0

I started my blog this year in February and this is the first Christmas card I posted on 18 September.

Wow, four cards in a single post. I hope you are still awake and it wasn't a long, boring post :D

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)

Here is another variations I came up with.
