Love is in the air

Hi Duddettes,

Wish you a lovely morning!

Ohh wait, I am not talking about Valentines' Day in the month of August. But, then why not, is there any season or month fixed to express your love. Or do we get so engrossed in our lives that we need these kind of pre-mentioned days to tell our loved ones that we care? I don't think so. Reason or no reason, its always delightful to express your love to the dearies of your life ;). I know you all are nodding :). Right? ;)

So, I am on my special way towards my special someone with this special message card..lolzz

Heres another look :)
Isn't this butterfly looking cute :). A CAS card, with some quick embellishments and the card is ready in no time. Voila!! I used kraft CS as a base. The )). Sprinkled with some dragonflies here and there {I have these cute lill creatures from my last years' extravagants on beads;), & they are bundled up somewhere in my stash}. The ribbon and cute sentiment stamp completes the look :).

I am playing the following challenges with this card:
Woodware - challenge#1 'kraft, red & turquoise'

A gorgeous card Neeti. I love the twisted ribbon idea and your colours work so well together. Your mini butterfly charms are so cute and fit in so well for our metal challenge at Kaboodledoodles this week.
We look forward to seeing more of your lovely creations in further challenges at Kaboodle.

Love the color combo! The ribbon treatment really give the card depth! Love it! I am definitely nodding my head. Hubby and I both believe you can't let someone you love know enough.
