Thank you Card

I made this card to thank a lady who was so kind to lend me a traditional Indian Outfit this weekend. I was invited to a co-worker's wedding. They are Indus and their clothes are so colorful and beautiful. I knew that this would be a rare occasion where I could wear a true Indian outfit and was so happy when this lady told me that she would lend me one. It was sooo comfortable!!! I need to get one!! :)

Sketch Challenge at Guylou's Inimitability


Guylou's Inimitability is having a much easier challenge this week. Carmen is our host and she prepared a wonderful sketch. I love sketches!!! Once I figure out which papers I want to use, it is a piece of cake. Here's the sketch:

I made the above card for a friend who is getting married in a few weeks. I wanted the card to be colorful and fun and I needed to make sure there would be red and gold on it as these are the traditional wedding colors in their culture. The image I used is new and is called Romeo and Juliette - Version 1. I created two versions of the image to match different cultures. You can see the other version here. The papers are by Bella Blvd; in their collections: Sophisticates (#215-Sprinkles & Lace & #223-Tail Tags) and Family Dynamix (#189-The Littlest Things).



Please take a moment to go see what my fellow DT members and our Guest Designer did for this challenge. All the projects are soooooo beautiful! Please visit Guylou's Inimitability to get the details and you can visit their blogs to leave them some luv too! :)

There is a prize to win. A winner will be selected randomly and will get a $5 Gift Certificate from Guylou's Inimitability Online Store and an opportunity to be a Guest Designer in an upcoming challenge. Don't forget... if you use a GI image on your project, you double your chances to win.

The challenge at Guylou's Inimitability starts today and ends on September 1st at 10:00pm. Looking forward to see your master pieces.
