Happy Diwali...

Yo,

I know I am a tad bit early in posting this Diwali card but I have a bunch of these to do so better start early.. For the international ladies.. Diwali is one of the many festivals we celebrate in India..

I tried Masking once again.. It's so cool.. Once you learn a new technique you feel like using it over and over again... Looking for different ways in how you could incorporate it in your project... It's like a bug with me.. I have to keep working on it till I feel I have improved one level.. Ohhh and Ujjwal.. I did get the stamping bug... :D....

Well I won't talk much... I'll show you the card straight...!!




A close up of my  diyas... :D



Simple and straightforward... Not much jazz into it...

I have used a cardstock which I got locally.. The stamp set is Woodware USA Indian Dreams which I had won for the ICR challenge.. Inked it up using Unity's Noir ink pad which I got from Ujjwal.. Jazzed up the diyas using glitter balls from Pie Lane...The sentiment stamp is borrowed from a friend.. Inked it with regular faber castell ink... And hose cutie heart stickers are also from Pie Lane...

Entering this card for the following challenges:-)
