Taj Mahal Magnolia...

Hey Blog Buddies!
Tonight I created a card for one of my very best friends.  
I had a rough week at work, and she always makes me feel better.  
She is the very personification of sunshine
And this lovely little Magnolia stamp reminds me of her.  
My bud has been ALL over the world, including her native India.  
She has visited the Taj Mahal, and since I am not a world traveler, 
I live vicariously through her!  
So I combined, the stamp, the Lindy's Stamp Gang die cut, 
and the Taj Mahal paper collection from DCWV and made this for her...

Here's me and my best bud...

And here are some interesting "Taj Mahal" facts:
In 1631, Shah Jahan, emperor during the Mughal empire's period of greatest prosperity, 
was grief-stricken when his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, 
died during the birth of their 14th child.
 Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1632.  
The chronicles of Shah Jahan's grief illustrate 
the love story traditionally held as an inspiration for the
Taj Mahal.  The principal mausoleum was completed 
in 1648 and the surrounding buildings and 
garden were finished five years later.
Well thanks for coming to visit, I hope you'll be back soon!
