Miss You!

Hello! I am back with another card for this week Freshly Made Sketches by Rita WrightIt's a wonderful blog with extremely talented ladies on board, and I am really happy participating in their sketch challenge every week. I am inspired by all the other beautiful entries. Such a great site!

Here is my take on this week's sketch!

I am glad to make this card because it's little different from the usual card that I make. Yes, I have added some paper roses to create some 3D effect :) This is the first time I ever made roses using paper and I guess it turned out well! I used to make roses out of ribbons during my school days. I was so excited to make one after a long time. Well, for this card, I heat embossed the roses with white glitter powder to make it little shiny over the petals. The rest of the stuff are pretty simple - "Miss You" sentiment, two gold brads on the corners, and lovely swirls to finished off the card.

Easy Daisy Thank You

Hey guys! This is my second post in Freshly Made Sketches. Well, I missed the last two sketches from FMS. I am super busy these days. It's hard to find time for my craft work. Anyways, I made this card for this week's sketch by Tui Nathan. I've to brief a little bit about this card as I used some of my favorite embellishments to make it.

I made some paper daisies last month which I thought would be perfect for dressing up cards. So, I used one of that to embellish the card :) and I'm crazy for swirls! Hence, I glued some paper swirls on two sides of the flower. Ribbons are my favorite piece of embellishment. But I get bored of using them just to tie bows. Here, I cut the ribbon into short pieces (about 2"), glued both ends together and nicely attached the ribbons to the side of the circle card. Then, I stamped on the "Thank You" sentiment to finished off the card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend! :)
