Modern card using Pattern paper

Hello everyone,

Today, I have a fairly modern card for you. As a crafter, I have a tonne of scraps of paper, specially when I am done making a card or a scrapbook. And recently, I made a card using Papericious Incredible India collection, and was left with tiny little scraps and the main 12X12 paper also left in pieces. So, I decided to use those adorable scraps and make this card:

If you look VERY carefully, you will be able to see how there is a man on a boat in the base panel. :P I know you can't unsee it now. Hahaha. Anyways, I lined up similar coloured papers and fussy cut the floral images on the same paper to add interest to my card. I gold embossed the sentiment and used zari thread to add elegance to my card.

The tiny block with crystals is again a reused element that I saved a long time ago from a rakhi. Yes, I do that kind of miserly collection. :P

I hope you like how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have an amazing day!

1. As You See It Challenge: I think such sketches force me to think out of the box and create something different. Also, the image was the motivation for me to use my scraps.

2. Paru's Card Making Challenges: This is a new card that I made from the old scraps. And I can't tell you how happy I am that my beloved papers aren't going to waste! :)

3. Papericious January Challenge: I loved creating my previous card using pattern papers from Incredible India and somehow those old scraps were too lovely to be thrown away. So, I made this new card from the old scraps. :)
