Celebrations with ICR

Our very own ICR has just crossed hundred members and over 1000 pictures in it's gallery.. Kudos to Ash and Tejal for all the hard work they put in.. Liek I have been cribbing in my last few posts.. The Mojo has gone mad and erratic.. comes to be in spurts.. I have an idea in mind but when I try to execute it, it goes KAPUT... Hate it... grrr...

Anyways last night I sat down with much determination to make the card... and as usual I had to use some DHIN-CHAK colours.. I love bright colours.. Makes me feel good about myself and life in general...

Anyways, Here is my card...








I used a baby blue Fabriano Elle Erre card stock and lots of my scraps through which i ran my Fiskars sunburst punch to give the layered look at the bottom. The scalloped circles were first traced and then hand cut and a digi sentiment has been placed on top it.. I do not remember where I got it from.. In case someone does know please inform me so that I can give credit to the designer for it... Distressed them with Hobby Ideas inks ( my substitute till I get some distress inks for myself).. The blue PP is from an old wedding card.. Have had it in my stash for ages.. I hand cut the banners and wrote the word PARTY using Pie Lane glitter balls (black).

Khush

The banner idea is awesome. Must have taken some dexterity to do it ! I struggle to glue such tiny beads without making a mess!

Hi Khush,

This card is awesome and that Fiskars punch is so attractive... I love that design. You beat me to it. I wanted to do a card with such kind of borders at the bottom except that I don't have that kind of patience to punch border after border.

Your colour combo is brilliant. Blues are always so cheerful and make you feel so unblue.
