I have used a very beautiful ivory card stock. It looks like it is handmade because of all the little pieces of wood like thingy. After sewing on the sequins, I pasted the card stock on to gold paper. The edges on the gold paper have been tampered with and then coloured green.
I took out my dainty gold ribbon to make a cute flower which also did not turn out cute :o( (It's just not my day today)
One layer card?!?!! Oh wow! Actually, I wanted a quick card. All the things were made earlier for a card that was never made :0(
I hope the glare in the image is not disturbing you, so lazy of me not to retake the pic.

I have dyed the brown paper and the red one is just a plain card stock. Again, I can not live without playing it rough with the edges (I have no clue as to why "being raggy" attracts me so much! LOL). Oh by the way, thanks to my dad, I got a nasty cut on my finger! To make the edges look like this I use a steel ruler (and always have). But this time as I was in the process of making this card, my dad came to check up on how much I was done. While looking at me fighting with the edges with my ruler he mentioned the word "Cutting Blade".... oh well, after that everything went real bad! LOL!
Now, that is it for the "blabbering" part.
I used gold pen on brown for faux stitching and brown on red. I used my new Faber Castell colours on the circle! (Yay!). Drew the circle on plain white printer paper, I cut it in a way so that I could have some white space. The white space, just outside the petals is really enhancing the flower otherwise it would have just blended in with the red card stock. After colouring and everything I pasted it on a red circle which was slightly bigger than the flower and then again on a brown circle, which was again slightly bigger than the red, and then on the card. All this just to pop it up a bit.

I just love Sarah Kay images, I wonder why I have not used them. Maybe because I was treasuring them! hehehe
Check out this cutsie elephant that I have used on my card. I took this image from the same colouring pages website that I take all my images from. I am not a big fan of elephants but this dancing elephant caught my eye! She is just so freakin adorable! Muaah! Kisses to her! I have named her Ella Ballerina! LOL

Here is the original card. Is it not the cutest card?! I really wanted to make one like this and so I did, with minor changes of course. I have no idea who is the card designer, if anyone knows the designer please let me know. I would never want to take credit for someone else's work. It takes a lot of patience and hard work to create such nice cards and it hurts even more if someone does not give you credit. I am specifically saying thanks to the person who designed and made this card. It is a wonderful creation. I love it. I hope you do not mind if I copied your card. If you do, please do not hesitate to let me know. I will pull it off immediately.

I manage to “complete” one card today. I have been working on it since my last post, but I was not getting the time to finish it.
Anyhow, it’s really a simple card. No flowery stuff from me this time lol
I have cut strips of paper and coloured them with a colour pencil. Glittered the odd ones with transparent glitter.
I have always loved the buckle thingy or whatever you talented ladies call it. So I took a piece of paper and made two cuts with the help of a blade/knife, inserted the ribbon in one and out from the other.

I know I am not as good as you guys are butttttt love card making, so I am gonna be here a while :)
This is award is from one of my favorite blogs, and a very nice person who shares the nicest and the funniest stories about her mom. You guys must've guessed by now who I am talking about, it’s none other than Trudi of Made By Me. Thanks a bunch Trudi!
I will be passing on this award to the following ladies:
1.Use the twinks bank icon
2. Only 5 people allowed. (to be nominated) .
3. 4 of the 5 have to be dedicated followers of your blog
4. 1 is to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
5. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.
I usually make this when people want to give chocolates as gift along with a card or if they want to give many cards.
This card is created by Christina Fischer. I am sorry I do not have a link to her blog but I am mentioning her name. It's a wonderful card Christina! I had this card saved on my desktop since long, finally I had the courage to make one like it.
I took the picture in direct light that is why the red is looking way too bright. The card colours are quite subtle then the ones in picture.
I took brown colour pencils, light and dark and shaded the entire card to give it an antique look.
I used the same wrapping paper and same design on both the cards. The only difference is that I made one with a butterfly for the Verve challenge.
I did the same thing here too. The only time taking job was to draw these small flowers, cut them and then outline them with gel pen. These are really quite small.
Here you can look closely at how untidily I have made them! LOL
