Sending BIG Hugs!


Hello Everybody,

Long time no see! I cannot believe that I have not posted since last Thursday! Life became busy with baby sitting friend's son from boarding school over the weekend, Aditi being sick yesterday and cleaning and entertaining a bunch of medical students this evening! But I have been making plenty of cards which I will share in the coming days.

But first, I am doing happy dancing right now:) After a very long time I won a challenge:) My card won the Queen of Couture for Runaway Challenge #33. Oh! what a feeling? Love it! Thank you so much RIC Team!



Then I went through the new Runaway Inspired challenge #34 and made a card for it too:)
Here is the photo for you.




Love the black and white theme with a dash of red. Moreover I am also inspired by the one sided print.
Here is what I came up with.


I love the big leaves from Woodgrain Silhouette Additions stamp set from Wplus9 They were perfect to get the bold image on one side of the card front. I have added the dash of red by stamping the sentiment in red. The sentiment also coordinates with the big solid leaves. The sentiment is from Big Greetings stamp set from MFT.

Hope you like my card. Thanks for stoppping by!

Ta!
