Guest Designer - Akshma

Hello everybody! We're delighted to welcome Akshma from Akshma Creations as our guest this month.  Akshma won our Spring challenge in April and today she's here with her take on this month's Circle theme.  You're going to love what she's created, so without more ado, let's hand over to her...


  About Me: I am Atchaya and well known as Akshma in my craft circle as my craft creation name is Akshma Creations. I started Crafting a year ago. .I started off with Quilling and into proper card making 9 months ago.This is my first time guest designing. I am feeling so excited and honoured. Thanks for this opportunity. This is my blog. You can view my works here: http://kraft ycraze.blogspot.in/ and on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/akshmacreations/.

   I made a Circular easel come side step love themed card for the theme playing with circles..I made a circular easel set up and made a side step card with White CS.Decoupaged it with  Indian made bob n betty pattern papers. Distressed the edges with Abandoned coral Distress inks. Added couple die cut and a circular love you die cut elements. Embellished the bottom with tiny mulberry roses. For the side steps I fuzzy cut the glittered foam hearts and adhered to the steps. The special thing is I added my own digital embellishments of 2 ribbons in the front top portion and the base of easel card one. In that ribbons too I designed a circle and semi circle  and made as a ribbon design. I took the print out and fuzzy cut it and then added as embellishments. That's all about my card. Hope you like it.
What a gorgeous creation, Akshma!  Thanks so much for joining us this month as our guest.
