Rakhi Cards..finally :)

So finally I am getting around posting the Rakhi cards I made for my 2 sweet and caring brothers :D (Don't know where all that love is coming from because we fight most of the time..and that too over nothing :D Maybe I am just getting into the festival feeling..LOL)

So I wanted to add some traditional Indian touch for these cards and decided to pick some bright colors, block prints and rhinestones to start with.

Close up of the coloring details and rhinestones

And here is another one, I just changed the colors and kept the design same.

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: WPlus9(Magical Moments), Lawn Fawn(Smitty's ABC); ink:Jenni Bowlin(Brown Sugar);  Embellishments: Rhinestones(local)

I picked up the block design from the Magical Moments set by WPlus9 and stamped it 4 times in brown ink to create the focal image. The sentiment has been constructed using Smitty's ABC by Lawn Fawn. I think they turned out pretty, What do you think?

Hope you liked 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.
