Happy Diwali or Deepawali

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card to show you that I made many years ago - maybe 10 years ago. The image is from a fancy gift wrap paper from India and I have used fabric pop up glitter glue from India by the name of Fevicryl. I have also used red and gold sequins and I stuck them upside down so that the convex side was on the top to keep them from making a dent on the paper. The gold hand made paper below is also from India. It has been cut with scissors in an organic manner without using any lines or such. 

Below is a rangoli I made for Aleeza's Diwali celebration in class this morning. I used fresh flowers emphasising on Jasmine flowers for their lovely fragrance. The classroom did smell wonderful. I also related a story about Diwali and shared how it symbolised the victory of good over evil. I discreetly put in my two penny worth of wisdom about environment too which made me feel quite impressed with myself. Lol.

 I will enter this card in:

Happy crafting,

Hello Monica
How elegant that whole wrapping paper must have been .The piece that you have used for this elegant card looks amazing on the gold hand made paper while your embellishing is very tastefully done .
Love your classroom rangoli too.
