For Amma dearest :*

Heya folks,

Welcoming the new month with a new challenge over at Indian craft room!!! I can't believe we have already reached the month of May 2016!!! 

This month's coasteride is super duper awesome. I am sure it will push you to try something new. Yup, its a pocket letter challenge.

Here's the story board for you :)

 This Storyboard is designed by Hostess, Shraddha Patel. Such a wonderful and thoughtful challenge and theme. 

So here's what I made!!!
As I didnt have a pocket letter folio, I used a 12x12 inch pattern paper and scored it at 4 inches vertically and horizontally. I used the pattern paper from BobnBetty- the Ornate annie collection to make the different portions.

I had a awesome time creating this one as it was completely out of my comfort zone.

For the 1st portion I used glitter alphas from Itsy Bitsy to spell out AMMA (that's what I call my mom), the flowers are from the poolside ephemera collection.
For the 2nd potion I kept it simple- Used a floral washi tape and a co-ordinating color of quilled flower, then added the word love again from poolside ephemera collection and a wooden butterfly.
The 3rd portion has a beautiful quote- "Beautiful, gentle, understanding, forgiving- my mothers love."
The 4th portion is a quote again- "For the friend, the support, the mom your are- I love you."
The 5th portion is one of my favs coz of the pattern paper I simply love this particular pattern in the ornate annie collection the most!!! The Camera is again from ephemera poolside collection!!! (Pic will be added later)

The 6th portion is simple with the moment that I made my mom proud!!! My graduation day :) (Pic to be added later)
The 7th portion is embellished using butterfly from itsy bitsy collection. The quote love this is from ephemera poolside colllection.
The 8th portion reads Happy mother's day!!!

The 9th portion is my 2nd favorite portion because I made use of the ornate annie collection to make a set of coasters but I somehow felt it didnt do justice to the paper. The altenew stamp kind of overpowered creation. The coaster added the perfect touch to this pocket letter adding the much needed dimension!!

Do play along this lovely challenge and stand for the chance to win a beautiful stampset from a new Indian Stamping Company, Mudra.

Lots of love,
