Diwali Blog Hop 2019

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are ready for the Diwali Festival... For my international friends, Diwali is like Christmas for us and we wait eagerly for this festival whole year. Here is the wiki link if you want to read more about it.

As we are neck-deep in our celebrations, surrounded by our families, it would really be ungrateful if we miss to remember all those Real-life heroes who make it possible for us to enjoy all this securely and fearlessly, in our homes. As a token of our gratitude and to acknowledge their sacrifice for us, we sent out handmade cards to a few Army and Air Force units all over our country, as a part of this hop. A small effort from our side to convey that they are in our thoughts and prayers.

This was made possible by our teammie Ishani , who herself is a part of the Indian Air Force family.

Here is my card for this hop, I went totally traditional with the colors...

To make this card I took 5 by 5 inches white card stock and inked by background using Tubby Craft inks. Once satisfied, I stenciled the background with texture paste using  Sunburst stencil from Craftyscrappers. Meanwhile, I stamped, water colored and fussy cut this cute Ganesha from Tubby Craft. 

To add further interest , I added vellum die cut out using sizzix dies as a backdrop for my focal image. Stamped the sentiment from same stamp set and completed it by adding gold sequins. 

Here is Blog hop order  :
