Glitter on red

Hello dear friends,

I have a card today which I made for a fellow officer's wife's birthday. He told me it was her first birthday after marriage. I had to make the card look like it's an occasion for celebration.. of love and birthday. Why not the most auspicious colour for Indians.. colour of wedding and celebrations - red?

So, I did something which a Punjabi-still- choora- wearing new-bride might like.  For all my International friends, Punjabi is a community of India where, when girls get married they wear special bangles called choora, which they can wear upto a year and it symbolises a new bride. Let me show you a Punjabi bride or may be my own picture :)


Do you see the bangles.. wrist full of them? These are worn after marriage.. till few months.

                             


I think this design would look great on a lehenga (a skirt). Too CAS for Indian Standards though :D

I hope the recipient likes it.. And you like it too :)

All that glitters here is Gold!..Yes!

Celebrating Love and a Birthday
