Story into Squares !!!

by - October 06, 2012

Hey Peeps..

Me back again.. :))

I am offlate inspired to again do a card of a different type..
and what best than to incorporate "many" of the same thing into a card.. LOL

Confused??

Well, all i meant was..i have tried incorporating 4 squares into a square shaped card :)

So here's my one of its kind card based on this theme.
As always, this is again a complete handmade card.






I Handcut a square card. And added 4 squares into it.

The pink hearts background is also handmade :) I spray painted it.

The squares are lined with silver glitter quilling strips which are handcut cut yet once again:))

Was wondering what to fill the squares with and that is when my heart said why not fill it up with a story...
a small cute love story may be?? :))

So here's what i did. I drew and painted the similar background of a tree branch with few leaves.
And the main characters of this story are.. OWLS :))

Yes OWLS.
I drew the owl images on a cardstock and hand painted them and stuck them onto the card. The pink owl images representing the female and blue owl images represent the male :).

I have also added the pink ribbon to the female owl images.. My very very small way of creating the awareness for breast cancer. :)



So here's the small love story.



(a) A lonely owl.. waiting for someone special (With half-heart)

(b)Suddenly there is someone on the same branch. (With the other half heart)

(3)Cupid hits and love happens. (the two heart pieces perfectlt fit each other)

(4)And now there is a small and very lovely and happy family :))

Ain't it sweet?? :))

This card is also my attempt for the campaign - "Save the Hooters".

I have also added the taglines to the Story Card :))

This card fits in the theme for the current Challenge Challenge #10...THE GAME is...Four Squares at "The Game" and I am linking the card for the same.

Since my project is also about hooters and little about breast cancer awareness, i am also linking it to CHALLENGE 130 ~ SAVE THE HOOTERS!! hosted by Craft Your Passion Challenges and DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY CHALLENGE - 20 (Owls) hosted by DL.ART.

And my project is also about a cute-love story, so linking it to Challenge 78 - Love is all around hosted by My Mum's Craft Shop Challenges and Challenge #35 Thinking of You hosted by Love to create challenge Blog.

My project has the pink based theme too, so linking it to Timeless Tuesday #189 hosted by Flourishes, Challenge 75 (Pink) hosted by Lexi's Creations , Challenge 42 - GO PINK hosted by Dream Valley Challenges , Think Pink hosted by CupCake craft Challenges , 2nd Annual Link Up for Pink!! hosted by Link Up for Pink and Pink Pink Pink!!! hosted by Stamping buotique.
