Keep your hopes high...

My "keep your hopes high" card is dedicated to those people who are always positive and continue to try even after failures :) I couldn't resist combing these three challenges to create this card.

This card is inspired by the theme HOPE at Casology challenge this week which led me to think about the sentiment n then the skyscrapers, the color scheme at Runway inspired challenge and the use of glitter at Pinspired challenge. I thought stars would be a perfect representation of shine that glitter emits :)

Butterfly flying to the top of highest building represents HoPe ;)
To create this card I hand drew the skyscrapers using a scale n sharpie marker. I punched butterflies, hand drew moon n star n cut them out. Added glitter to these n finally stuck them on my card.

I want to play this card for the following challenges -

1. Casology week 37-hope

2. Runway Inspired ric#32-moschino cheap and chic

3. Pinspired challenge #6

Hope u enjoy my card :)

You raise me up...

My "You raise me up..." Card is for my mother :) who has always been there for me in all thick n thins of my life. She is the best and I miss her so much. It's been more than a year that I have met her... and I definitely am planning to meet her this year itself. I love you mumma :)

As always, I have tried to combine multiple challenges to create this card .
My source of inspiration are the sketch from Freshly Made sketches (which I have reversed to fit my idea), the cue- SONG at Casology, the theme- BIRDS at Papercraft star, the color challenge at the Color Throwdown , No stamps challenge at CAS-ual Friday's and mother's day card at Dream valley challenges :)

The song I selected is "you raise me up..." By Josh Groban, one of my favorites and the lyrics suit perfect to express my feelings towards my mom. 

The lyrics of the song goes as follows ...

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

To make this card, I hand drew the tree branch, nest and birds. Colored these with my crayola markers and stuck them on the white card stock. Finally added the sentiment :)

For me green is leaves and nature :) so I have tried to recreate the same. The two challenge blogs that inspired me in creating this are Papercraft Star and Just Add Ink

I then cut it out with my craft scissors and stuck them on the card. I also created a vertical green panel by cutting a window n sticking a green card stock from behind, just to brighten up the card.

The colors used in the background are my Faber Castle Pastels. I used different red orange yellow colors to create a gradient in shades and create my sun.

Check Mate...

My "Check Mate" card is inspired by this week's challenge at Runway Inspired Blog spot and this week's Pinspired Challenge :) 

In making this card I am inspired by the colors in Runway challenged and by the words like BOLD & CONFIDENT displayed in Pinspired challenge. So to combine both these challenges I thought about the game chess where one player WINS over the other by Checkmate :). Hence, the color scheme and the sentiment showcase the two challenges.

I made the chess board by cutting a 3X3" White cardstock, then drew the grid lines and colored with by Sharpie Black marker to create a chess board. I then hand drew and cut the kings used in chess, stuck them with foam dots and finally added the sentiment :)
