Handmade Diwali Card 1 - 2015

Hi everyone!! Started with a few Diwali cards. This is the first card that I made. I am happy with the color combo and the overall look is what I had envisaged. 

Here's a peek at my card... I started by embossing the background with collage clay and a stencil from Craftslane. Then I colored it with distress inks - Peacock Feathers, Shabby Shutters and Forest Moss. The colorful pattern paper is a scrap piece from a very old card. Then started the decoration with peacock. The mdf peacock is from Itsy Bitsy. I colored it with gold acrylic paint and embellished with loads of rhinestones. Added a few more elements like the skeleton leaves in gold, some punched leaves & mdf leaves. At last, I added the sentiment which is a sticker from Pie Lane and finished the look with a golden thread and sequins and rhinestones here and there....


And the full look......



Do let me know what you think of this card!!
