All shades of green and a wee bit of blue

Hello dear bloggers,

Thank you for the comments on my previous post. I still am not able to post comments on your blog posts hence the silence. Ofcourse life is still too hectic and that is another reason for the lack of visits.

Here is a card I put together with feathers (which have been recycled from a head dress that Aleeza wore for her UN Day school celebration). The die cut leaf is a piece of tissue that Aleeza coloured with inks in school. It was the exact size of the leaf - not less or more. The ribbon was not considered to be of much charm by my older one but that is all I had and frankly, I do like how it matches with the polkas in one of the feathers.

Down below is a card that my mum made for me. She is a paisley specialist and draws free hand on all her cards. She has used Sakura gel pens to colour it and it looks really pretty in real life. Mum left last Sunday and we are sure missing her but our coming move is keeping us busy.

I will enter my card in the following challenges:

Wish you a pleasant Tuesday,
