Falling for You!

Hello Dearies,

It seems like ages, I have not posted any card here. But, it doesn't mean that my creative mojo left me far :). I have created a card, 2-3 boxes (it is so much fun making your own gift boxes) and also started a canvas painting. Whew!! Am very much excited to finish it off and to show you all ;).

First the card's turn. Here is my card:

Doesn't the flower look sweet? You know what, I think I got crazy about the flowers. I use them in almost each of my creations :o. Every time I start with a card, I poke myself to create on some other theme. But each time I just end up with flowers as a center theme. I think I am "Falling for Flowers" lolzz. Next time, I come up with something different, I promise ;).
Heres a closer look of my card:
I used a texted wrapping paper for the base. The color was so warm and it is saying "Celebrating the moment" and moreover I grabbed it from Target for couple of pennies :D. Don't you like it too? I used punched flowers again in warm and vibrant colors and cut out a petal or two for falling affect. I stamped a small flower on red cardstock to toppled the set of flowers. The blue cardstock was inked on edges giving it distressing look. The sentiment is really sweet "Falling for you". And I used a bit of faux stitching.

I created this card using Clean&Simple stamping's FTL 101 sketch.
This card is also in for the following challenges:

I wanted to show you the gift boxes also, but the picture didn't come out well. So, that is saved for the next post :D.

Tadas till next time :)
