Hold your breath !
Here we go ...


I love the flamboyant "brown and blue butterfly sitting on the green leaf "inspiration snapshot and was utterly speechless and intrigued to see Pooja incoorporate the colours so elegantly into her card. A single line appreciation doesn't give full justice to her masterpiece...with the beautiful stamped and embellished flower she amaze us always :) !!


Jovi made a shaped easel card  for the challenge. Stamped butterflies and punched flowers represent the garden factor on her that's a perfect 10 on 10 creation with such pretty colour combo,a complete feast for the eyes...ain't it ?


Karen portrayed her love for the beautiful deep red mums and butterflies in her so elegant creation.So beautifully embellished the entire piece is ! A truly striking piece.


She drew inspiration from a garden cleaner decorated with florals and a beautiful golden butterfly.This is simply mind boggling Shafaq...the beautiful colours of the flowers,the way it has been adorned ~ everything in it is simply fabulous and jaw-dropping !


Finally its me with my subtle creation ! :P My inspiration stands alone the lovely flower of my garden and  the very charming Eastern bluebird !

Hope you all enjoyed our creations and as the saying goes Creativity is contagious...pass it on ^_^
we believe you ,dear crafters will join us with full support

BGC#42 - All that Glitters

Hello all you lovely people!!!

Its so nice to be back here with a new and fresh challenge which all of you will enjoy.
Here in India we are all set for Diwali bringing out the sparkle and shine and loads and loads of lights making it all such a bright and happy sight.

A simple challenge which just takes our festive spirit one step further....


Make a project using GLITTER in ANY TWO forms or more (powder, strips, glitter balls, stickles, etc) and make a mention in your blog post as to what you have used.
Easy Peasy!!!

We would love to see subtle use of glitter..... Lets bring out all that sparkle we have been hoarding without making anything too garish ....

And the lucky winner of this challenge will win a RS 500 worth voucher from our lovely sponsor.

And here we have our DT's who have created some really cool projects

Karen made this beautiful LO of her daughter. She used some silver glitter dust and silver glitter tape :) 
The banner is the highlight ! Love love love the beautiful work !

So here we have a double tent card.... with Carousel Horses........ the types for glitter used are glitter glue on the horses and glitter sheet for the dividers... Wow ... now that's called thinking beyond the box...                  What say????

Bipasha has made for us this time a mini notebook with a lovely glittery charm. Pixie Dust and a Glitter butterfly bring all that sparkle to her project this time... 
PS.. the Resin charm is also made by her... Total Wowie for that girl!!!!!

The Queen of Elegance brings to us this time a set of lovely tags for Christmas. I just love the subtle colours and  the use for pixie dust and glitter balls (each one placed individually... awesome !!!)


And here is a tag I made for an awesome person.... I just love that sentiment from Simon says stamp... As for the Glitter I have diecut glitter foam and used glitter balls from Pie Lane in the flowers....

So do send us some love and start getting glittery this Diwali..
