YELLOW TILDA


A Very HAPPY KARWA CHAUTH to all my SAHM friends!!!!

For my international friends, Karwa Chauth is a festival celebrated by married Hindu ladies all over the world. On this day, the wife keeps a fast for the husband, praying for his long life and good health. She will not eat anything for the whole day and at night after seeing the moon, takes the first sip of water from her husband's hand!!! So Romantic!!!!! The lady dresses up very nicely decking in beautiful sarees and adorned with jewellery, she puts henna on her hand. All the ladies sing and dance and its a sight to be seen when all of them in a family offer their prayers at night. Sometimes, even husbands fast with their wives!!!!! But thats just out of love!!!!


Now, to some craft talk.



This card is made with lots of affection cos, I specially love this Tilda with butterfly. The flowers are punch crafted and the PP is from Echo park and fabriano. Distressing is done with wild honey distress inks. I,ve used spellbinders for the frame and CB corner dies for the corners. The brown lace is a Marianne's Creatables Dies. These are great to work with as they give intricate cutting and embossing in one go. The tida is coloured with steadler colour pencils with Pie Lane glitter balls on her hair. I,ve added some pearls and shimmer and the yellow gingham ribbon if from my stash.

I hope I get enough time next week to make more cards !
Enjoy Your Sunday!!!
