Wedding Card

Hi Everyone, 

This week has been a bit of a rough one. Our little girl has been running a fever (103.3) for the last 5 days and just today its come down a little... there is nothing more painful than seeing such a wee one go through so much pain and misery (she is 14 months). Anyhow - hopefully things are taking a turn for the better. Here is a little card that I made for my cousin's wedding. I didn't want to make a card using the traditional colors (more neutrals) because it is an Indian wedding - and that means there must be some gold and color. I love the paper that I used... the background is gold and turquoise filigree kind of thin paper and the then the other blue is a shimmery blue... its hard to capture it on the camera - but its really a pretty paper... I tried to keep it simple and was pleased as to how it turned out... 

I hope they like it too. It was so much fun to go to the reception and see my cousins whom I haven't see in forever... and for  them to finally meet our kids and vice versa. It seems these days that everybody is spread out all over the place and its so hard to coordinate a family reunion ... esp in my family. 

Hope you are all well and enjoying the summer sunshine with your loved ones,
Till later,

This is wonderful! I love the cake. A good friend of mine is Indian and I went to her wedding last summer. Very traditional, gorgeous and interesting. The most fabulous sights were the saris. Oh, my word--the colors!

Oh Sankari! I'm sorry to hear about your daughter being sick! I hope she'll feel better soon. Luckily, babies are quite resiliant and they can actually handle a 103 degree fever. Adults would probably fall apart and belive they're dying!!

I really love your card! The image really jumps at you! Very pretty! I'm sure your cousin will love it!
