Guest Designing at Sunshine Creations :)

Hi Friends,
Today I am very happy to share with  you a card I have made for my GD spot at Sunshine Creations blog  run by a very talented young  Crafter Anushka ...She is only 11 years old and  her work is simply amazing ...I have come to admire  her so much for her ability to multi task so well at such an young age.... She seems to so effortlessly manage school ,crafting ,blogging and now even running her own challenges!! And I am quite proud to be selected as a guest designer at her blog  for this time's challenge which is Season's Greetings..And here's my take on this challenge :

         I have to add here that I am not very good at making cards without floral embellishments in any form and this theme  was a challenge for me ...But luckily the beautiful Pattern papers from the Webster's- A Botanical christmas  came to my rescue:)...Love the beautiful designs and die cuts in this collection....I just cut out the door and added a few pearls on the wreath plus some on the cream lace below to jazz it up ...And for the first time got to play with some Hero Arts stamp and Distress inks with which I have created the background design !!
Oh and I have to tell you guys that since I was also selected the random winner along with GD for Anushka's last challenge(fall /Thanksgiving ) ...I won some cute & lovely Inkadinkadoo stamps for it ...But the ever generous Piali also sent me some utterly gorgeous paper's,  ribbons & alphas too ...Thank you so much Anushka and Piali for your Generosity.. ...I simply Loved it :)
And I wanted to link up my this card  to Annette's My  Clever Creation Blog where she has a celebration on with a link up party ..Annette is a dear blogger friend and I Love her cute, adorable and of course clever work very much  :)
