The Wild Side.

I got an order from a colleague of my mum’s. He wanted a birthday card for his wife. He was throwing a surprise birthday for her. His wife is quite young so I thought a peppy card would be much better. He liked the last card I made which I thought was just too dull for her (It was given to a guy). Anyway, here is my card.

I was trying to draw the zebra print and it wasn't looking so neat… so I thought why don't I revert to my old tricks… so I took help from an old friend… my glue gun…

You can see the embossed print clearly in this pic….

The print is hand drawn and the flower is handmade… oh the bag that is below the card is was a plain white paper… took out some wooden blocks and one of the many stamps sent to me by the gracious Stef of Ingenious Inkling, After stamping I outlined the flower stamp very roughly with markers.

Gorgeous cards, E.T. Love your hand drawn and hand made stuff!! A pity not much of the 'fancy' stuff that crafters the world over are so used to, is not available in the subcontinent!

Do drop by my blog some time!

Love,
Smita
