...my dear friend, co worker and office neighbor will defend his thesis. A book he's been working on for 11 years. A book that has become a baby of our department. It's a joyous day, to say the least! :) And the party tonight will be soooo much FUN!!! And I got the honor to make the card from the Historians of our Faculty. I made a book. It seemed appropriate... :)

I filled the inside with the front cover of his book along with cut out photos of him and the main characters in the book (which is about the Theosophical Society´s engagement in the Indian political and educational processes in early 20th century, so yes, it's Gandhi's head popping up together with Annie Besant and others...).

All patterned paper used are from the FABULOUS new Riddersholm Design Fleamarket collection. YAY! Love every piece of it!!!

Here is another card using the same Riddersholm Design papers.

I used a stamp my mom has owned for ages and never inked up. It's a shame... :)

I added some pearl maker in the centers, but other than that I kept it clean.

Have a wonderful Friday!!!

Galet snygga projekt, både bokkortet och det andra kortet. Stämpeln är superläcker, tur att mor din har dig så den slipper ligga i en låda och inte bli använd! :) Kram på dig, duktiga du!
