Confused colours...?

Hi all,
Yeah, I know I have been dormant for a while... but I did a lot of work too ;-). I made some gift bags after reading tutorials at DeeDee's blog and at one more blog. It was fun making those bags. Will post pics of the bags later... I also did some stitching - attaching lace to some cloth for an ongoing festival... It is festive season out here in India and we really decorate the pictures/statues of our Gods and Godesses; so I decided to go religious and decorated the shelves where they reside in my home. :-)
Here is one confused card from me. Sorry about the quality of the pics. Please bear with me for some more time. I hardly get any time during the day, and I click pics also after Aaryan's gone to bed.
The card has 2 pockets (I learnt this technique from a tutorial on Maria's blog. I had been wanting to try it for the past couple of weeks, and when I saw Kazan's sketch, I thought I could give it a try.
I bought a lot of laces and ribbons on Monday. Aaryan and I had quite a nice time looking at the dozens of laces in the little craft stores in our area. The pink and green lace used here are out of the same roll... it is shaded pink and green... I had to hand stitch the lace (another thing I had been wanting to do since long)...The embellishments are some sort of Chinese 3D stickers that I found in a local stationery store... they are called 'Dingdong stickers' LOL!!




I have left the tags blank so I can fill them with personalised sentiments when I decide whom the card is for.

Cheers,
Smita.
