Blog Anniversary Celebration Event -2 | Challenge-- Friendship Cards

Hey Friends !!

Welcome to the second event of my month-long Blog anniversary celebrations. For those who are new, I'm happy to share that my blog completed three years this month as well as it has reached the 100-follower mark. So, I'm celebrating this occasion by hosting a giveaway and a few contests and challenges.

I announced my first blog celebration event-Blog Giveaway a couple of days ago. You can read the post and participate HERE.

Blogging and crafting community is extremely warm and helpful. My blogging journey has introduced me to some of the most supportive and helpful folks, who have generously offered their guidance whenever I needed or asked. So, this event is about celebrating the kindness and friendship that we all have been giving and receiving in this crafting community.

   Today I'm announcing a challenge and the theme for this challenge is 'Friendship'.

Friendship Day Card using Mudra Stamp-Dainty Blooms

The floral stamp set is from Mudra-Dainty Blooms and I love how delicate it looks. It's one of my favorite stamp sets from Mudra. I water coloured those images (a technique that's a challenge for me and I so wish to get better at ) with the help of Faber Castell colour pencils. That patterned paper peeking out is from Lawn Fawn-Polka Dots.

I'm linking this card to CASology Challenge#209, where the cue word this week is 'Watercolour'. 

Also linking this card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Fabulous Florals.

Now, it's your turn to share your friendship-themed cards. Can't wait to see what you come up with.
