I made this card today for Card Patterns
sketch 77.I found the sketch to be quite interesting and so set out to make this really ethnic Indian card.The card in real is much more blingy..(maybe my camera couldn't take all the bling ;-) )
The card is essentially a Rakhi card I made for my brother..actually I happen to be sending him a Rakhi after a really long time...I must admit..I am a bit lazy.I got the idea of attaching the Rakhi in the card itself from Spardha's amazing card here
For those wondering what 'Rakhi'
is all about ..here's a little info..A Rakhi is a sacred thread that a sister ties to her brother's wrist on the day of Rakha Bandhan
and the brother in return vows to protect and care for his sister in her time of need.The Rakhi could also be tied to person who'm you would like to give the status or love of a brother. Have a happy week!
