Mega Celebration 2014 Event 2 - Challenge

Hello and welcome to Mega Celebration 2014 Event 2 - Challenge.
Hope you have registered for the first event - Blog Giveaway. The giveaway is open till midnight, 25th December 2014.

As part of the second event I have a challenge for you. The guidelines for the same are mentioned in the later part of the post. But before that, let me introduce to the lady who actually doesn't need any introduction..... Juhi Khanna!!

Juhi has obliged me by being the guest judge of this contest and she also has a card to inspire you all. I also have another secret judge who, along with Juhi and me, will help pick up the winner of this challenge.

Over to Juhi....

"Hello everyone, I’m Juhi from Juhi’s Handmade cards. First up, I would like to thank Indira for having me here, I am truly honoured.
I have been making cards since 2009, though not so regularly since my daughter was born in December 2011. She’s almost 3 now, which means I get some more time to craft. I must say, my card making skills are a bit rusted and I am still trying to catch up on the latest tools and techniques. My card features my favourite paisley stamp with good old stamping and heat embossing."

 Now isn't that a perfect beauty!! I so love this card! Thanks a lot Juhi for inspiring us!!

What is the Challenge about & Rules to be followed:
1. You need to create a card inspired from Indian motifs (e.g. rangoli patterns, paisleys, mandalas, mehandi designs, etc.)
2. The twist is to not only create the card, but also POST it to the person above you in the Linky.
3. Get in touch with the person above your name in the linky, obtain their postal address and send the card to her before 30 Dec 2014. Linky is open till 25th Dec.
4. Send me a confirmation email at after your partner receives your card. Only then you will be eligible to win.
5. You are allowed to enter the contest only ONCE.
6. You may combine it with ANY number of challenges.
7. Don't forget to link back to this challenge post.

The thought behind this challenge is to explore the beauty of our Indian traditional designs/patterns and use them in our work. Also, most of us are so busy creating cards/projects, but do we actually take out time to post them to the ones we love or in this case send it to the fellow bloggers with whom we interact so much? So, here is a great chance to bond with our fellow crafters by sending them a cute card with a sweet New Year Wish. This doesn't mean that the theme of the card should be New Year. You may take care not to create bulky cards, so that posting them is easy. Hope, it doesn't souns too complicated :)

EDITED: You need to send your card to the person whose name appears above your name in the Linky tool. In case you are the first to link up, you will have to send your card to the last person linking up on 25th Dec. To make things clearer, I will update here to whom you need to send your card, as and when we get entries in the Linky...
