MESSAGE UNDERNEATH!!!

Hello Everyone!!!! I know I have been absconding from my space...... Which is totally not right.... :( Phew!!!!

At ICR we are back with another colorful & inspiring challenge..... You must see to believe it!!!! It is very truly named as the DHIN CHAK CHALLENGE!!!!! LOL!

Dhin Chak is an Indian slang for something FLAMBOYANT!!!! Something that is rich & showy in terms of colors & dazzle...... Something RAAPCHIK!!!!! Eww!!! I find is word very loud!

Well going ahead with it, here is the challenge pad for you......



Is it not a Chakkas one!!! I'm sure it would tempt anyone to at'tempt' a creation based on the inspiration it oozes..... Just get inspired with anything at all in the photograph, with an additional combo to be taken care of..... You ought to add at least one handmade embellishment on your project..... Simple? Yeah?

Oh no! I had a tough time deciding what exactly I wanted with so much of inspiration in that photograph...... Too much is really too bad, sometimes..... Gets difficult to determine on one thing that you wanna focus on.... Takes a long long time..... & it did..... Took me half a day to finally decide on what I wanted to put down, on my creation..... ;)

Narrowing it down finally, here is my creation......


Rib Swap

And I thank,

Sketch Saturday for their Sketch.....
Delightful Sketches for Masking....
Papertakeweekly for Blooms....

Prep :

Chocolate CS for the card base....

Lemon yellow DP in stripes from Itsy Bitsy.....
Golden embossed handmade paper in red from Timeout....
DP with scalloped border print from a scrapbooking kit.....

Flourish is a big shot die cut....

Punched out leaf & flower petal.....
Scalloped Octagon cut with Spellbinders & held together with a brad from American Crafts....
It has a message underneath & the brad acts as the hinge keeping both the flaps together.....
