Makeesha's Sketch Challenge #14

Hello everybody,

I am so glad the school has reopened. Both Siddarth and Aditi were happy to get back into the routine. Sid was excited because he has a new teacher for this term. He wanted to see her. She is a young graduate and first time teacher. So can't wait to hear all about her when he comes back home in the afternoon. Aditi wanted to enquire about her teacher's holiday in Vietnam!. She was worried when she saw floods and storms out there. So there will be some interesting news from her as well.

I came home and sorted things out and sat to make some cards for couple of sketch challenges.
Although I completed them and now blogged them as well, I am starting to have Migraine. Feels weird when I look outside (its bright outside), giddy, nausea started, head is starting to ache. I have popped a brufen and hoping now that I will get better. All I have to do now is quickly finish blogging and off to bed with eyes closed.

Ok quickly,here is Makeesha's sketch.

And here is my take on the sketch.

 A few things I did differently on this card. I combined dazzling diamonds with clear embossing powder and heat embossed the the kindered Spirit sprig image. I used a butterfly punch to punch out Real red cardstock butterflies and attached mini Old olive brad on them. The heart is from the 3 heart punch, which is inked with Riding Hood Red and covered with crystal effect.

CS: Real Red and Very Vanilla
DSP: Haiku
Stamp Sets: Great Friend and Kindered Spirits
Inks: Garden Green and Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Twine, heat gun, dazzling diamonds, clear embossing powder, butterfly punch, 3 heart punch, crystal effects and mini brads.

Gorgeous card, Gay - I must try embossing the dazzling diamonds next time. I hope the migraine responded quickly to the brufen - they're not much fun when they get a hold! Keep well, Jo
