Swirls & a good friend.

Hello Ladies, Hope you had a pleasent weekend. Me ? Yeah, it was pleasently creative. My mojo continues in full swing, gladly 🙂

Amazingly again, last night was fruitful enough to keep me churning out another 6 cards, that is, till the wee hours of the morning ! Yes, Feel like I am on top of the world. Its been that good. This weekend, I had this urge not only to create cards for the challenges but also to experiment with different designs and textures. You’ll see the results in the following posts.

This first card is really special to me. I think I would rate it a good 7/10 !! And that itself speaks volumes coz I really am, very critical about all my own projects. Nothing is really ever good enough for me, including my own handwritting. Thank God laptops and keyboards  🙂

Like I always say, the simplistic designs are always the most attractive ones. This card is ideal for both genders although It does sport a large flower. Amazingly this card carries 4 differnt handmade papers. I have tried to take close up pics of the flower to get you to see the textures.  Remember, I told you about how I managed to open that new stack of handmade paper bought atleast a year or so before ?? Well, all this is spilling out from there.

The ivory paper is embossed with swirls, the Flower itself has two different, thick paper diecut with a button in the center, a tag with a friendly message and two butterflies. How simple can it get ?? This simple 🙂  The card, itself, is in very pale ivory, white, and green tones, except for a little dash of red.

This is a general card which you could present for valentines or an all-year-round-card for any friend/collegue/classmate/neighbour.
