Hello everyone!
Hope you are enjoying your crafting!
Did you miss me! I needed the break as I was not feeling well for few days back, but I am fresh now:).
 My first sweet and lovely blog friend  Monika from is celebrating her Birthday Linky Party!!!!!!!!! She has invited us to CASE one of her cards and her party continues till the end of April. She has chosen some of her favorites cards and I have tried to CASE one of her stunning creation!

I created a cute and fun card with combining of several techniques which are her favorite ones- stenciling, embossing and she is master in to create her own backgrounds:))))

 First, I stamped this cute and smiling Alligator on a  snippet of vellum and for a subtle look I heat embossed it in Wow Earthtone mint regular. Then I colored it with distress markers.
 For creating the water waves I have stenciled the waves using embossing paste and before dried I added Opaque Primary Azure embossing powder on it and heat embossed it!
Then I created a window in the center of my card. And used this snippet piece in inside panel and sponged it and then laid the waved panel on it. Then for adding more interest, I added one more scalloped frame on that vellum! I used the cloud stencil and sponged it to create a sky background. At the bottom panel I added a splash border for more fun!
I have used a new sentiment stamp by Fiskars for the SMILE sentiment(love the font style)
 A close up look; I added some glossy accents for shinning eyes!
I hope you enjoyed the card. Thank You for the opportunity to celebrate your month long Birthday Sweet Monika! May god filled the joy in every field in your lovely life!
Have a wonderful day!
