CraftyJC Challenge #11: An Inspiration from Indira

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend.
Today I present to you the third inspiration for Crafty JC Challenge#11. Yup, I am also the DT for this challenge as I was one of the winners for the Recycling challenge.

So here I go.....
"My name is Indira Tanwar and I live in Mumbai with my husband. Ours was a love marriage and we have been married for 3.5 years now. Being an Army officer's daughter, I was privilleged to travel across the length and breadth of the country. I did my schooling from 7 different schools, graduation in Jalandhar and MBA from Symbiosis, Pune. I work in an IT MNC in Mumbai.
Given a chance, I would chuck my job for crafting!! I have been crafting since childhood and my source of inspiration is my mom. I used to watch her paint, stitch, do flower arrangements, sugarcraft and what not. I love all sorts of crafts and like trying my hands at new things. But, quilling is my all time favorite. I think I first did quilling when I was in school. I had seen some book in a library (internet wasn't known then), and tried it on coming back home. I don't even remember what I had made and where it is now. The second time I did quilling was 3 years back when I came across Shilpi's quilling kit at the Hobby Ideas store at Inorbit, Malad. And I have been hooked to it since then. I started my blog in 2007 just to store my creations on an online interface, so that I could access it whenever required.
It was only in 2009 that I started blogging seriously. I was amazed to meet so many talented crafters in India through blog land. ICR provided the perfect platform to know many more of them. It gives a really nice feeling to know you have people like you who not only appreciate your work but one also gets to learn so much from them.

About my card...
This is the first time I am a DT for any challenge. Hope I do justice to it.
I have chosen palette #2 as my inspiration. I think green, blue and purple combo looks very elegent."
I would like to thank Jaya for having the faith in me to host this challenge on her blog. I am just doing my bit to help her.
