Indian motif

Hello bloggers,

First of all, a warm welcome to my new followers - Romina, Jovi, Deb's creation, Anita, Karuna, Kiddo, Chronically creative and Carolyn - thanks so much for following my blog!

It has been a while since I last posted a card... just been so caught up with life in general.

Here is a card I have made with my Indian motif stencil... 


Cardstock - red
Embossing with Cuttlebug
Image - stencil with Indian motif coloured in with black.
Ribbon - American craft
Flowers - homemade with Sizzix mini diecut, Carla craft and my new stamen punch.
Flower centres - blob of metallic pop up glue
Sentiment - Thanks (handwritten)

Close-up of my homemade flowers

Another variation of the same card - the black and white printed paper is fancy gift wrap.
I am submitting this card for - flowers.

Will try and visit later this evening...
