Quilled poinsettia.

      Here is my Christmas card for this year. I made the poinsettia with bee hive quilling but without the frame. Ever since Chris posted her flower and shared her tutorial , I wanted to try it out. I did not exactly follow her tutorial to make this flower but the idea is entirely hers and I do love the lacy effect of this kind of beehive quilling. The card itself is very simple and looks really lovely in person.

     Thanks for stopping by, Have a great day.

Diwali greetings.

Wishing all my readers a very happy , prosperous and safe Diwali.

I am happy that I found some time for a card for diwali, I made the crackers by rolling red colour two and a half centimeter strips into tight coils. It turned out bigger than I expected almost as big as the real ones and completely filled up the card.

The punched stars and flowers are from a gold colour paper with a beautiful sheen which unfortunately doesn't show well in the photograph. The background paper is a metallic lavender .It is altogether a glittery card.

Thanks for stopping by , A very happy diwali.
