My first altered Item :)

which I created for  Julie Elak's 3D creation/altered item challenge at Yvonne blog. What I love about her challenges is that they are always different and make you try things you have never done before. 

For this challenge, I tried altering an item for the first time and I chose to alter a wedding invite to create a folder. (I forgot to take the picture of the invite before I started altering it otherwise you could get a better idea of what I did. )

I used some colored pages to cover the front. The invite already had a window in the center where I chose to put my image (a cute one :))

Added the frame to the window with different shades of pink. Colored the image in some non-traditional colors and added some doodling on the border. Here is a closer look at the doodling

To finish, I added a Jenni Bowling chipboard button, some twine and a hand written sentiment. 

For the inside, I create pockets to hold things and kept the colors same as on the front. 
Here is the inside of the folder

Recently, I was having trouble keeping my rub-ons and stickers organised (I never found the one I needed on time) and I think this folder should solve my problem. Look at the angry owlie screaming "Stay Together" :D

Here is a picture with some of my rub-ons in it

Thanks for visiting!! Hope you like it!!

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.
