So now on to some inspirations,as i said last month the top 3 winners of challenge#1 are the guest designers this month,as nidhi jain is getting married,we have only 2 inspiration now...

First one is from tejal,an awesome floral card.I love the hot pink n black combo n the stamping,lets hear what she says:
Tejal here...I'm a physiotherapist turned card-maker. I've been crafting for almost 6 yrs now...and every day I still love learning something new.
I love the clean and uncluttered look of making cards and that's what you will find in most of my cards. .But being the Guest Designer for Kavitha's challenge blog, I wanted to incorporate her style and yet
keep my this garden of Dahalia or Gerberas (actually they're sunflowers stamped pink..don't they look stunning) is styled after Kavi's style of creating a garden of flowers and yet it is a one layer card...

I hope you like this and it will inspire you to create something wonderful too..Thanks Kavi for such a fabulous opportunity!!

Good luck to you all! Have fun”

Next is khushboo banka ,an awesome gift box with punch craft flower.Love the arrangement n the ribbon treatment,lets hear it from her some more:

I am Khusboo from Kolkata. At present Im doing my MBA. I have been crafting ever since i could remember. I love buying different craft materials but when it comes to using them I get a little naggy as I just want to store them forever.. My parents have been a great support for me in my process of learning. They were always ready for my crafting venture. I do a lot of research work over the net and has learnt a lot from it. I am still in the process of discovering myself more in this field..

Here is my take on the challenge,i have made two handbags with lots of punch craft flowers.Visit my blog for more details.

Happy crafting,
