FIRST ANNIVERSARY!!!!

Hello!!!! Thanks to one & all for those lovely words of appreciation..... Keeps me going..... I wanted to attempt few challenges, which were really challenging.... The most important thing, is the crave for pocketing cards, that is the result of all those awesome challenges..... It feels great to see the FINAL PRODUCT, influenced by these awesome & great ideas..... :-)

So here I am with my post for today.....

This month on the 25th, my brother & my sister in-law, would be celebrating their 1st wedding anniversary..... I really looked forward to make something nice for them..... And few challenges paved the way for me to accomplish that yearning...... :-)

First Anniversary


I thank.....

Card Patterns for their nice Sketch.....
Totally Gorjuss for their Colors....
Daring Card Makers for Emerald Stone Inspiration.....
Our Creative Corner 6 for their Anniversary theme.....
Stamping for the Weekend for Card 4 Male.....
Double Dutch Challenge for Number on Card.....
ABC Challenge for Unused Stash......
Cute Card Thursday for Someone Special!

First Anniversary


I used.....

A blank white card with envelope from my stash.... which till date I had not used..... (True that there is a time for everything ;-)
Pink Cs for the layered panel, which in turn I layered with a green printed paper (again from my stash) & a lace & ribbons in peach/green & light/dark pink, respectively......
Designed layers on green plain craft paper, adhered on to a CS, on which I adhered a similarly cut design in dark pink CS....
Hand Written Sentiments.....
Cut a number ONE from scrap & did a faux stitch on it for an effect..... Adhered the green rhinestones on the number.....

First Anniversary


I even lined up the ready envelope, by inserting a panel in green printed paper used on the card, to make a customized match..... Hence, completed this project for my brother... for his important day..... Best Wishes!!!!

First Anniversary


And this basket is for my Sister in-law...... I would fill it with some other nice goodies, for her.... As of now, I just filled it with those recent purchases I made online..... ;-)

And I Thank.....

Fussy & Fancy Challenge for Basket.....
SSDS Challenge for Anything but Card.....
Sweet Sunday for the cupcake inspirational Colors.....
Inky Impressions for Summer Creation....
Creative Cottage Challenge for Fancy Folds.....

And not to forget, I thank Gina K from StampTV, for inspiring me with these ideas of a basket & lining up the envelopes.....

I Used.....

Pink & Red CSs for the base & layered panels, respectively.....
Plain handmade paper in Orange & a patterned paper with bright summer colors.....
Autumn leaf punch.....
And embellishments from my new purchases made from Itsy Bitsy....

First Anniversary

That is it for now.....
