Very much in love!

Creative work has been put aside for the last week or so and Passover holidays have really taken over! I have not picked up my craft knife or glue in several days now, but we all deserve a break now and then, don't we? We are having a LOT of fun. So far we've visited Haifa's International Flower Exhibition which was tremendously crowded but breathtaking; taken part in the truly eye-opening Dialogue in The Dark in Holon; and tomorrow we will be donning hats, scarves and gloves to visit Ice City in Jerusalem. I promise some great photos next week but in the meantime I want to show you a card I made for a wedding that took place at the beginning of this month, just before the Passover holidays began.
This card was requested by the big sister of the groom and she was keen to include as many things about the young couple as possible. They are both tall and slim, my customer told me, and very much in love! They like to go on outdoor trips and camping together, and they both study the sciences. Most grooms in Israel go for a rather casual look but this young man was going to be wearing a suit and tie for his wedding. It was important too that I showed him wearing a kippa (skullcap).
This was a very detailed but simple card to put together. I have shown the bride and groom dressed for their wedding in the appropriate clothing. A tent is nearby, though I suspect they were not going camping for their honeymoon! To the left of the bride is a pile of (science) books and a microscope is perched on top of them. I added a few hearts and flowers to the card too since it was their wedding and thus a pretty romantic day!
Mazal Tov to the new couple and Mo'adim LeSimcha ("festivals for joy") to those of us enjoying the Passover holiday week. Life returns to normal in a few days time...

Beautiful card! I love how you incorporate things about each person on your cards and make them personal to the person receiving the card. Enjoy your break and time with family.
