Thank You

to all my wonderful readers, followers and friends for their constant support and appreciation. Today's card is dedicated to all of you :)

I am following the Practicing Creativity Challenge Sketch. As much as I love PCD stamps, its sad that I don't own any yet. This sketch challenge seemed like a great opportunity to try and win some :D

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: WPlus9 (Magical Moments), Mark's finest Paper (sentiment); ink: Unity Stamp Co. (French Lilac); Embellishments:White pearls and twine

I love the white-lilac color combo and I think this card is prettier in IRL. This photo doesn't do justice to it. I have stamped the outlined flowers twice(first prominent and then subtle along the edges) to give extra depth. I added some white pearls (I thought lilac pearls would have looked much better, but I didn't have any :( ) to the center of the flowers and wrapped some twine to finish it off.

I hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!!

  5. Lovely card, Ujjwal. And I like this color the way you have used it, though otherwise I'm usually in a fix with lilacs and purples! I also like the stark contrast of the textured jute strings against the elegant background.
