Sleep.................

It is almost 2 am........I'm exhausted but can't sleep....I had been trying to sleep since the last 3 hours, I've given up trying now.......I have to be at work by 8:30 am tmrw :(....anyway its Friday, one drowsy day at work and I can sleep in on Saturday........now to the card I made today. I took almost a whole day to make this one......not because it needed a lot of work but because I just couldn't get it right......I got a huge roll of broad white crochet lace last weekend and was eager to use it....I thought it'll look great on a black and white card......but couldn't think beyond the background.......after two failed attempts with silver glitter glue, which looked like this
(the black paper used for the base turned out to be a total spoil sport....nothing would stick on it, even the glitter glue came off after drying, couldn't stamp on it too, I also tried to make roll some silver ribbon into a flower but failed miserably there too) and if this was not enough I tried making some crochet flowers and they didn't come out well either....this is what I finally made........
It is inspired by Card Patterns sketch #65
Well I'm off to trying to sleep once again.....

  3. have always liked black and white color combinations. And this one is outstandlingly brilliant. Guess u wanted to sleep badly, so that kindled the ideas for choosing the colors ?? Black signifying the dark night with the full moon (white) colors - yday was Buddha Poornima ;)
    Wow, I tried my own deductions here.
    Must say that this card is a brilliant piece, cherish and keep it with u always. Totally brilliant creation !

  9. Hey Juhi...please check the blog candy on the side bar of my blog. I think it's a great opportunity to win some fantastic stamps. Please pass the word around to everyone.
