Hello.....!!! I´m Archana Bhurke. I live in Neu-Ulm,Germany with my loving and supportive husband and my 8 yrs old adorable daughter. I did my Masters in Botany but ended up working as a Diamond Jewelry Designer for European market.
I have always had keen interest in Fine Arts and tried my hand at several art forms from jewelry designing, painting, sketching , paper crafting and card making . I enjoy to create something pretty with papers.
I took my card making hobby seriously 6 years back when my daughter started going to kindergarten and started my blog in Jan 2011. I absolutely love to be a part of this crafty global community.
I´m so excited and honored to be a part of  Cas-ual Friday´s challenge team.

For this card, I have used "Loving thoughts" stamp set from Cas-ual Fridays Stamps.And felt flowers are handmade using Loving bloom Fri- Dies.
