CraftyJC Challenge #14: An Inspiration from Priya

Hey folks! We are back with another lovely inspiration for the very pretty and talented Priya. Priya is known for her clean and well color co-ordinated style of card-making. Let's see what she is sharing with us today...
"Hello friends! It’s Priya Sondhi from Bangalore, India. From the childhood I always had a liking towards arts, crafts and colors. I and my sister used to make paintings with different techniques like metal embossing, batik, glass paintings, etc and other pretty things to decorate the home. Or you can better say my sister used to do all the fancy stuff and I usually copied her ;)… So my childhood was spent among paints, brushes and papers.
As the life took its turns, my sister went abroad to pursue her career in fashion designing and I pursued my career in software. One fine day I stumbled upon some paper crafts websites and it completely bowled me away. I slowly started my process of learning paper crafts and used to follow paper crafts blog silently..With the encouragement of few lovely ladies in ICR I finally decided to start my blog…
I strongly feel that everyone should have a hobby to pursue which can give them a space of their own, energizes the life and to have fun even if you are alone.

This time I tried a new type of card. Its called telescopic card. You can find the tutorial here. It's a 3 layered card which is perfect to say those 3 golden words "I love you" :) I have used 3 different sized decorative hearts circle diecuts. To make them slide, I have used some brads. Papers are from Echo park (courtesy, Some Itsy bitsy alphabets and 3D stickers. Swirls and rhinestones are from PieLane. I have tied a little ribbon at the top for hanging. I hope you liked it."
