CAS Again

Monday, 14 October 2013

Hello dear friends,
First of all, wishing all my Indian friends a very Happy Dussera! Hope you all are having fun with the festivities around.
I'm here today with a fresh card for three fresh challenges-CAS(E) this sketch #49CAS-ual fridays #117(in stitches) and unstampabelles #28(stitching). Here's the card:
CAS card
So, I started this card by hand drawing the birds on the black and blue textured matstacks and cut them out using a pair of craft scissors. The nest has been hand drawn with a black permanent marker and cut out from a brown coloured textured matstack. Then I pierced a few small holes in the nest so that I can show some stitching with a natural twine. The nest and the birds are stuck on the white base card with the help of foam to add some dimension. The eggs in the nest are the stick-on white half-pearls. The tree and the leaves were hand drawn using permanent markers. Sentiment was hand-written.

Thanks for dropping by. Have a fabulous day! :)

PS: Just came to know that crafter's corner is hosting a challenge "Cheers to New Beginnings'. So my fellow crafter friend Hridya suggested me to link this up there. Thanks for the idea dear ;) So linking it to Crafter's corner challenge #13-Cheers to New beginnings. And my card depicts many new beginnings-be it a new home, a new relationship, welcoming a baby, etc. Hope they like it :)
