Hello dear bloggers,
Every Wednesday is Manyano Day for me and a group of friends. Manyano means a circle of sisters in Afrikaans and it was started by a South African lady who used to live in Jakarta. I am lucky to be a part of this very special group that meets every Wednesday for yoga, fabulous home cooked potluck, meditation, Angel card reading followed by an interesting Ted Talk or a movie. Not to mention the tea and cake that we eat to help our girths expand, lol. It is indeed one of the nicest days of the week for me and I look forward to it rather excitedly.
Now to my card -  I have used fancy gift wrap to cover the card stock and a Sizzix die cut for the sentiment. The paper is actually a subtle gold but in the picture it decided to look dull and muddy. The gold stars are stickers and the organza ribbon is from my stash.

I will enter this card in:

Wish you a happy Wednesday,
