Congrats card set.

Firstly, I would like to thank all of you who have given me great display ideas for my craft projects made for school fete. They are all fantastic and I have taken down notes. I will take photos of my display on the fete day and share them with you. I knew I could count on you guys :) Priya, I have used hot glue to stick all my flowers on the metal hair clips. They stick pretty good for me.

Here is another card set for the fete. Its a Congratulations set. I wanted to open and ink PTI's Congrats stamp set released couple of months ago. And when organising my stamps, I found a Kaisercraft Christmas stamp set from last year. It had a huge damask stamp. I wanted to use it and silver embossing powder and different colors to make my cards. Here they are for you.

I wanted to make them all clean and simple yet glamorous. Thats why I used silver embossing powder and sliver paper to matt. I did not have double stitched Hawaiian Shore ribbon, so I used the satin HS ribbon instead. HS double stitiched ribbon is on my "to buy" list.

Tomorrow school restarts for the last term. Its a short and full on term. In Australia, our school start in Feb and end in Dec. I cannot wait for tomorrow. I am a person who loves routine and cannot wait to get into the routine. Work also retarts tomorrow. But that means waking up early, school runs, drives to evening classes.... busy but thats how I like it. Also what I am excited about is I will be getting some new goodies in my mail. I think in total of 4 or 5 parcels to come. Beautiful colourful copics, cute stamps, dies and light tent. All excited.

But now I need a good sleep. Thanks for stopping by! 

Goodnight! See you soon...

How fabulous is that damask stamp?! WOW! Embossing it has really worked a treat. You've gone with my favourite Congrats from that set. It is such a regal looking font and perfect for your cards. Lovely job all round Gayatri. Just marvellous!
