Honoring Lakshmi

Bohemian Bazaar... *le sigh*

I really love this paper. To me it's like a candy display. It's sweet and juicy. It's like freshly ground spices and the stuff of life. Beautiful and vibrant. It's an Arabian Nights fairytale or Hindu celebration.

With that in mind I've created this ATC Honoring the goddess Laskshmi.


Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity, fortune, and the embodiment of beauty. Her face is calm and kind. Golden coins flow from her hand, bestowing good fortune.

A video tutorial is available for making this card and I've created a set of back tags you can download here. Here is the complete supply list...
