“HELLO” – SUNSHINE TULIP CARD

May 30, 2017

“A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different…

It doesn’t have to. Its different…”

These lines from America’s celebrated spiritual teacher and author Marianne Williamson describes the spirit of the Tulip flower. Tulips have been known since centuries as the symbol of perfect endearing love between partners or family members.

Today I dedicate this card to the bonhomie I share with a childhood friend of mine whom I have connected with after almost 30 years. I have used Yellow tulips in this card as they mean “there’s a sunshine in your smile”. Yellow tulip is a great medium to express affection and care for your friends and loved ones. I dedicate this card not only to my friend but also all my fellow designers as a mark of warmth and camaraderie I share with each one of you.

This “Hello ” card is a layered card.

Memory Never Fades

January 30, 2017

“Like an old photograph
Time can make a feeling fade
But the memory . . .
Never fades away.”

Hello Dear Friends, Shalini Pahwa here and welcome to my first post on the ECD blog. I’m super excited to be here. The above lyrics from American singer, songwriter and actor Tim McGraw are the essence of my latest creation. I have made this from an old hollowed-out table clock and I chose faded, antique looking colors to give it a worn look. I decorated it with flowers made with dies from the exquisite Susan’s Garden Club collection. This creation of mine is a reflection of what one really wants to hold onto in life – the reminiscence of good times past, incorporating those experiences and what we have learned from them into the present.
