The day of flowers -card
This week's DCM's challenge was to make a card that celebrates and reflects a festival from another culture to your own....
I've been living in Greece and in Cyprus couple of years ago. They both have quite similar cultures and mostly same festivals also. Something very different from ours is how they celebrate first of May: They have that day called "The day of flowers". They use to decorate their front door with flowers and have a picnic eating mostly vegetables. (Those flowers were later on taken to church, where they were burned, don't actually know why.)
So I made this card to celebrate the day of flowers. I crocheted the white flower, printed out the sentiment, cut the end of the card with Fiskars shape template and their cutter, added some patterned papers, ribbons, lace, silk flower and wooden button.
