Modern take on Diwali card !


Diwali card
Wondering whats with the title ;) here goes the Story..I used Indian motifs (mostly paisley ) in traditional ways for previous Diwali cards (you can check them here). I wanted to create a modern looking Diwali card ,lots of white !As  Lotus flower have lot of importance in Diwali ,specially for Lakshmi Poojan and the set had one that too not like usual ones.Took it as a challenge to use it differently.

  12. The first thing I noticed was your incredibly colored lotus blossoms. Then the immaculate arches, and finally I began reading your wonderful write up. Your Diwali card is lovely, and definitely full of light and beauty! I wish we could have a holiday like that - as a reminder of all the incredible things we humans can achieve if we set our minds to it. Thank you for sharing your (yet-again) amazing designs! hugs, de
