Prickley Pear Design Team Monday!

Happy Monday!! Hope you all had a great start to the week. Since its Monday, it's time for another Prickley Pear Monday card :)

And I actually did this one to send to my Mom for mother's day :) Since she stays quite far from my place and I get to meet her just once or twice a year, I miss her a lot. So I thought I will send her a thinking of you card this time around.

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!;  stamps: Prickley Pear(  Mini Birds Clear Stamps Set.); inks:Jenni Bowlin (brown sugar); embellishment:  Self Adhesive Crystals; coloring medium: Faber castell markers
I kept it one layer so that it would be easier to mail out. I simply stamped the images with brown sugar ink on to the cardstock. Then I paper pieced the bird and the cage and added them on top of the stamped image. I added a bit of color using markers and then scattered a few gems :)

I hope my mom likes it :)

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

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.
