Hi everyone,
It feels great to be back to my daily routine after a short break. The cards that you saw on my blog last week had been made before I went on my break. I'm trying to catch up on all the activities my friends have been upto in the last few weeks and I sincerely apologize for not being a regular visitor of your blogs since quite a while. Life's been pretty much eventful this side, and it is expected to remain that way for the coming few months. I did manage to squeeze in a few minutes today for making this card inspired by Cas-ual Fridays Challenge#134- Tic Tac Toe.

Here's my card:

I chose to go by the cue words in the second column--Black, white and gray.
 The Making:--
1. Stamped the leaves from the hero arts -scattering leaves stamp set using memento dew drop ink pad-London fog (gray leaves)
2. Cut out a panel from another white card stock and precisely stamped the leaves (in archival  black ink) over the edges and on the inside, in such a way that it shows some continuity. Stamped the sentiment from Itsy bitsy. 
3. Popped up the smaller panel over the card base using adhesive foam strips.
4. Finished it off with 3 pearls in the lower left corner.

Thank you all of you who take time out to comment on my work. You all make me feel so special. :)

Happy Crafting Everyone. :)

Hello dear friends and fellow crafters,

I'm really excited to share that I was invited over at Kraft zone blog to be a Guest designer for this month's Challenge there, it's about Clean and Simple or CAS cards. For those who have been following my work for a while now may be aware that I love making CAS cards. So, when I was invited by Khushboo to be this month's guest designer, I felt truly honoured and happy. Also, this is my first ever GD post for an Indian Blog challenge, which makes it ever more special.

Below are the two cards that I made as an inspiration for this challenge. If you would like to read more about the making process, please hop over to my GD post at Kraftzone. I would really love it if you leave me a few words there. :)
