Tejal's birthday card... :-)

Heylo Peeps,

We had such a blast planning this surprise for her and it worked.. PERFECTLY... Well the whole idea was that we'd do a sneak peeks of our cards in the hop and the card would be given to her at 12 in the night.. ( I had couriered them off to her husband who promptly gave it to her at 12.. Thanks Hemang... )...

I being the lucky soul got to see ALL of the cards being sent to her before anyone else... yeyeyeye... *LOL*

I had such a tough time making a card for Tejal.. Did not know what to make and how to make.. She is such a [perfectionist and I am so FAR from perfection that the divide between is too great to measure.. BUT.. after a lot of soul searching, googling and a bunch of other things.. I came up with the simple idea to KISS it literally...

So I made a gate-fold card for her.. Easy peasy and really fast to make because I was short of time.. Exhibition pressure was ON that time... So here's a full Monty of my card.. :D






The theme of our blog hop was Butterflies and Bling.. The two things the lady absolutely loves... It was an easy theme to decide but a difficult one to work upon... So after several head scratching hours I made this.. Isn't the cake digi cute... YESSS.. it is a digi.. :-)....

The previous sneak peek once more... :D



I absolutely love this digi... Cute cute cute and some more cuteness....

This is a pretty big card.. 6*12 inches... :-)... Pink fabriano cardstock of 12*12 ( I cut a full size sheet to size).... Layered it with PP which was a RAK by A... The digi image is from bows n berries which I had won in Y's blog... small pearls and bling are from my stash.. the big pearls were sent by A1 supply with my purchase of a punch from their store.. awesome pearls... Colored using my Staedler water color pencils and the butterflies have been coated with glue 'n' gloss.. The sentiment is a digi freebie I picked up from somewhere....



Happy Birthday Tee... Hope you have a wonderful wonderful day... :-).....

Hugs,
Khush
