Congrats card share

Hey all..
I was having a boring day, until the weather decided to do a lil twist. LOL. Its pleasant and very romantic now. So I thought to make a card for Cardabilities challenge # 84. It was a tricky one. And I chosed different color scheme this time. Orange is so not my color, but i wanted to play bold and beautiful. ;)
By following the Cardabilities sketch # 84:
I made this card.. Now let me tell you a lil something about my card.
This card is pretty dimensional. I adhered book text as background, and then used patterned paper by basic grey (I dont remember the collection). I'm so regretting the fact that I covered the pretty patterned paper, but thats how the sketch goes.
The beautiful paisleys you see is dry-embossed. I punched Congrats using a border punch (my brother got me from Thailand). I had no silver ink, so I heat embossed the backing strip in silver and adhered on the back of my punched strip. The lovely flags beneath the shabby chic lace are embossed and inked as well.
These flowers are punched and then treated well using inks and stylus.. Heart is hand-cut and glittered to give more interest to my card.
I am in love with these daisies now a days. Its like my second favorite after paper peonies.

Let me know what do you think? Is it good?
Leave your feedback in the comment section, and i'll pay you back a visit. :)
Have a great day, ya'll.

Enjoy Life's Moments

Hey everyone!
I'm here to share with you a card I made today. I have been dyinggg to get my hands on the heat embossing system, but offcourse because of the obvious reasons I was not able to get that.
But now, I got em. And its FABULOUS :D
This thing is magical (saying it in smurf's style. LOL)
I added three layers as base, just to give my card a lil extra dimension.
Then I adhered book text in the back, and then comes my final layer. The heat embossed and inked one.
I had this stamp since forever, its HUGE. And I'm still not sure why I never use this gorgeous stamp ever.
Anyway. I used two brown tone distress inks in the background.. Distressed the edges using my new found love Time holtz paper distresser. For the sentiment, I heat embossed "enjoy life's moment" on black cardstock. Added a lil bit of gesso on the edges of my sentiment banner and adhered it using foam tape, for more dimension.
So, over all this card is embossed dimensional card. hehe.
I hope you'll like what I have made so far. Please leave your comment down below. That matters, ALOT!
Have a great day.
