Its Friday and always a day of joy for me with the anticipation of a fabulous weekend :D

I love the colors in the card I am sharing today - green, orange, brown and cream which I took from FTTC86. The Sketch and the theme of leaves is from LimeLight Paper Crafts Challenge56 and the inspiration comes from the photo at Simon Says Stamps Challenge - Autumn

And here is my card

I have used a paper doily for the first time and I loved using it!! I distressed the edges with orange ink, hand cut the leaves and painted them using acrylic colors (since I didn't have those colors in my paper stash). The  sentiment is a rub - on from Hobby Ideas.

Hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!!

EDITED: This card is featured on the CARDS Magazine blog here.

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.
