Indian Inspired Lattice card

Pin It
Ok so i think i am officially obsessed with these things! This one was with the Labels nine nestalilities dies and the shape reminds me of Indian buildings which suited this next play. Our daughter dose one of her teaching pracs over seas next year and India is one of the two choices, she was so excited to have this opportunity so it inspired me to make this card to encourage her to follow her dreams in life. I made this with basic grey but i think it may have looked nice in another colour?? This is meant to look like a garden wall in India with embossed pebbles or bubbles cuttlebug emboss folder sponged with choc chip ink......I printed a pic of some Indian buildings to tape inside (another idea which could be used in heaps of different ways) and decorated the front with vibrant coloured flowers as Ive seen in pictures from India.

Very basic flowers here nothing hard at all with the Boho blossoms and spring bouquet punches and 2 step bird punch leaves, then glitter and some diamonds around the window to finish.

So I hope you have enjoy yet another of these lattice cards..... and I must thank you all for the encouragement you send me through emails and comments ...they are all very much appreciated :) and keep me motivated.
Blessings to you

and a last thought

For I can do everything Gods asks me
to with the help of Christ who gives
me the strength and power.
Philippians 4:13
