Layered...


My take on this week's Card Patterns sketch (love it!) with The Play Date Cafe Colors ( difficult but interesting!) I wanted to make a masculine card (for my husband's brother who has a birthday this week) and the colors were perfect for the occasion. Just that they were really tough for me to use because I almost always use very bright colors!

I've used loads of dimensional foam tapes since I am anyway going to hand deliver this card! :-)


I am also entering this card for Julie's challenge on Yvonne's blog - something old and something new [the patterned paper is old, the buttons are new; the ribbons are old, the technique is new :-) ].

Ohh... and I just saw this lovely blog award that I got from dearest Spardha:


Thanks, girl! And things that make me different from others:

** I love to do things different from the usual... what everyone does is not something I am interested in usually!
** I love going out (for a stroll, for dinner, for movies, for brunch, for anything...) and according to my husband, it is best to take me out when I am unwell, because I am perfectly cured as soon as I step out!
** I love luxury items - jewelery, watches and perfumes are my weakness and I own loads of them all ;-)!
** I love my caffeine cups - both tea and coffee- with plenty of sugar :-) and I can have a whole pack of (sweet) biscuits with them at a time ;-)
** At the moment, I am not-so-eagerly awaiting my 30th birthday :-p {I normally start counting the days to my birthday when there are a few months to go}


I would like to pass on this award to:

Shalini
Juhi
Tejal
Savitri
Ujjwal

and to you too, Spardha!
Cheers,
Smita

  16. What a great card Smita! I love the metallic bit you added. Masculine cards are always so hard to make, but this one is awesome. You and I must be turning 30 around the same time- mine is in just over 2 months.

  21. hey thanks a lot lady, i missed this one too, I guess I have a lot of catching up to do!
    Love the elegant,masculine card, i've had that patterned gold paper with me since ages, I haven't been able to use it on any regular card as I thought it was too traditional, n there u have made a totally non-traditional, masculine card using it.......brilliant!
