And I'm Back

Hello Friends,

How you all are doing ? It's been long long since I posted anything. I was not blogging for last few months so missed visiting your blogs. Though I was active on facebook. Last few months were the toughest time of my life. Mom's heart attack, angioplasty n my leg's fracture all happened in just 4 days. By God's grace everything is fine now n I have started crafting again.

Few days back when I sat down to make a card, I found my mojo is completely lost. After two days of struggle with layering, embellishments, I finally manage to complete this card.

This is a double pocket card with tags. It was in my to-do-list and decided to make it when I saw current challenge theme at lulupu blog. The background is handmade using distress inks. I have shared a tutorial on it on CCC blog during my DT term. If you wish, you can check it out here. The white flower is heat embossed on vellum. I have also tried my new tool -corner chomper on tags. I love this tool as it can be used on variety of materials to round off the edges. Here are few more views -

Entering it into -

Hope you like it. I'll visit your blogs soon.
