You're sew lovely!

Today's card is for all my lovely blog friends, followers and readers (aka lurkers :D)! Thank you so much for all the fabulous wishes yesterday on Friendship Day. My phone has been a real spoil sport and I wasn't able to reply to any of your messages. It kept showing some network connection error(hate it when that happens!).
But I hope you all had a great day and to compensate for not wishing you in time, I made a card just for you :D

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps:Lawn Fawn (Sew Lovely); ink: Jenni Bowlin(Cough Syrup,Chewing Gum), Unity Stamp Co. (french Lilac),Faber Castell (black dye ink) ;embellishment: Pie Lane(Self-adhesive flower, Glitter Balls),

You might remember the dry brush technique I used on THIS card sometime back. I used the same technique to create the distressed look in today's card but instead of acrylics, I used the inexpensive Faber Castell dye ink. It leaves such a lovely effect. The swirls are hand-drawn and created using silver glitter balls from Pie Lane (Available for purchase with me, you can e-mail me to place an order).

This is my entry for the Lawnscaping Challenge#15 - Distressing Mania.

Hope you like 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. 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.
