Rakhi Card!

Hola!

My bro is coming tonight and we would have an extended Rakhi celebration till 24th Aug. ( Am on leave this Monday! - Yipee!!)

Hence i had to quickly make this card before he is here! I took 45 minutes exact to complete this card without an idea of what it would come out like.


Note: For my dear international friends here is the meaning and reason for celebrating this occasion in India! :)

Rakhi Celebration : The true meaning of human values

Indians believe that relationships are the essence of celebration. Rakhi festival in India holds the true meaning. Also known as Raksha Bandhan, this festival brings the whole family together. That mere togetherness is celebration which calls for a total festive environment.

Raksha bandhan is a day to celebrate the sacred relation of brothers and sisters. It is a festival that primarily belongs to the North and Western regions of India but celebrated throughout the country with the same verve. Regional celebrations may be different but Raksha bandhan has become an integral part of the custom and tradition of India.

I ended up making a pocket card... finally :) Also a little piece of good news... My guinea Pig Gobbes gave birth to 2 cuties yesterday and they are up and running around her already :D. If you are on FB with me u can see their video and pics.

Ok back to the card- so i have used lotsa embossing! Tim holtz distress embossing powders and cuttlebug and the rakhi is also handmade :) Lotsa Bling bling too!!


Thanks for looking!






Cheers!
