Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop With Love

Hello friends!!!
Wishing All of You A Happy Holi!

Today Holi festival is celebrating all over India!
Holi, is the festival of colours, heralds the beginning of spring and is celebrated all over India.
The celebration begins with a holika bonfire on singing and dancing (a day before Holi) followed by a maverick carnival of colours the next day where people play with or splash colours on each other.
The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring and end of winter. And for many, it is a festive day to play, laugh and meet your loved ones. Holi is also a day to forget and forgive, and repair ruptured relationships. Here are few pictures of Holi.......

Whooo hooo!!! So, I finally finished my card for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and played first time!!  I wanted to keep my card very fresh, bursting with everything spring color with COFFEE and here's my take on the challenge!!!!

Print
 
       To create my card, I started by cutting out the 6 x 6 card base. I create my own background using Cover -a- card Wooden Plank stamp in Faded Jeans distress ink and then sponged it with Vintage photo and darken some lines for more texture using Vintage Photo distress marker.
      I matted my dolly on a blue colored scalloped PP and on that I fussy cut a heart from the same PP pad.
I stamped the image twice and paper pieced and colored it with distress marker. Fussy cut it and popped it up on another piece to create dimension! Then I stamped the flames and embossed it with snow marker for the creamy flames(I am so happy to see the result in real, as I used it first time)D.
 
I created my own small flowers , pollens, a bird topper, crystals, sparkles and a golden thread were adhered to my card.  I used pop-dots to adhere my all elements. I also used a die cut Flower vine and colored it using copic markers and placed them in between my flowers. The word, “With Love” was die-cut 4 times and adhered the layers together with a glue pen so it stood out more, heat embossed in golden, distressed it with faded jeans for texture.
For my butterfly, I die-cut it out of printed vellum and glittered it and highlighted it with my golden pen too!
 View of inside: I used the leftover flower die cut for matching outside.

Hope you enjoyed my card creation!
Have a great day filled with joy!!!
