A love forest came alive..:)

Hi everyone,
Hope you all are doing fine & crating till you drop!!
I made this birthday card keeping Lulupu's & Itsybitsy's challenge in mind ;)
I have chosen column C2 from Lulupu's Favorite four groups..

Mini Crafty steps:

1.Stamped the butterflies (bought from starmark mall) & coloured it with markers
2.Gluedquilling strips & swirls through the arrangements
3.Pasted the Small hearts(Little Birdie) over the quilled strips
4.Can you notice the small cuckoos(from itsybitsy) sitting on the quilled branches :)
5.Printed out the Happy Birthday Sentiment with microsoft word & colored it by myself!
6.Tried a little bit of distressing(for 1st time tried my hands on distressing techniques) @ the bottom border of the card
Thats it!!

I know I am horrible in photography :( please bear with it this time..I 'll try to use Sunhera's tips in my next creations :P

A Paper woven Card..!

While browsing through crafting sites..I came across a nice technique of paper weaving!!
In paper weaving,stripes of papers are passed through one another and the end of the stripes are glued ..:)

I made a simple New baby girl card using the technique...I am loving the flower craft punch as these tiny lovely flowers easily fit into any card I make ..:P

You can get to learn paper weaving by watching the following video:
