Day Four.

A. Guess what I did today? I bought a plane ticket to Australia. Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy
More to come on that later as I plan more. :) Any suggestions on where to visit in Sydney? I would love to hear some if you've been there before!

B. Pictures from the Seder on Monday. It was such an awesome learning experience; I'm so glad to have people in my life to inform me about other people's perspectives and ways of life. Since I'm not an expert on Seder or Passover, I'll link you to some information here. And, actually, here's a link to the article about the Seder at the White House that happened at the same time as ours. So cool!
Jen's homemade Seder Plate.
Our table set up for 14 people in our living room.
Mahzoh- the unlevened bread that is Kosher for Passover. The Jewish people at our Seder said they could tell who was Jewish and who wasn't by how much they liked the Mahzoh- us experiencing it for the first time liked it because it's not the only carb we could eat for the week of Passover. :)
Jen leading our service. She did a wonderful job explaining everything to the 11 of us who had never been to a Seder before. Don't I have a gorgeous roommate? :)

C. Today's card.
This is for the CardPatterns challenge this week, hosted by Hero Arts. Here's the sketch:
Here's a little run-through of what I did:
1. I used paper to mask off the middle area and stamp Hero Art's Lace Background Stamp in Vintage Cream in over the card base. It adds a subtle and elegant texture. I love this, but next time I'll do it on paper that's a little darker next time so it stands out a little bit better.
2. I used scor-tape to stretch across the card on the outsides of the masked off space and cover it with glitter for a little definition.
3. Then I added the Dahlia, the sentiment, and the ribbon in a triangle for visual balance.
Here's the close-up:
Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink- Vintage Cream and Aqua Mist, Ink- Colorbox Chalk Ink (Brown) and Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream), Ribbon- Offray, Glitter- Martha Stewart, Adhesive- Scor-Tape, Stamps- Hero Arts (Lace Background S5341) and Papertrey Ink (Delightful Dahlia).

Okay, hope you enjoyed day four, even if it is thirty minutes past midnight. Oops! Haha see you tomorrow for day five of fun!
