Shagun Envelopes!

If you follow me on FB, you must have seen these already, but I just wanted to share these shagun envelopes(we have a tradition of giving monetary gifts in India, especially at weddings ) with you here.

It is my maiden attempt at quilling (something that I find fascinating, something for which I follow numerous blogs, something for which I have watched lots and lots of videos, something that I have wanted to try for the longest time). Even though my quilling is not perfect, I am so proud of these :D

I made a pair of these in red and orange and I am showing off so many pictures just to make sure you don't miss out any pretty details(there are lots of little ones on these) :D

These will add that special touch to the monetary gift giving tradition! 

P.S. I have a couple more designs for these envelopes to show that doesn't involve quilling. Will post those too in the days to come.

Entering these for the Itsy Bitsy Wedding and Celebrations Challenge for January and for the Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge#7-flowers.

See ya again soon!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 

Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching

Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.

Here is something that I am very proud of. This was my first attempt at a 3D paper cake and I adore how it turned out. More loved because I am not really a pink girl and this explosion is all pink and I still love it :)

Don't ya love that cake? By the way, I recycled the "Happy Birthday" from an actual birthday cake :D
