From China with Love - Mid Autumn Festival

Hello my lovely friends ...
I miss you all, since a week I am not be here on the blog land :)

In few days ahead is the end of this September,  there is a Mid-Autumn traditions have been thought up by Chinese people, and as my parent and family have this tradition too, I can found Moon cakes on my mom's house.
The main celebrations during the Mid-Autumn Festival are appreciating the moon and eating moon cakes together with family.
I just remember when I was a little girl my mother always making some lantern for me, those are come from honeycomb paper :) or if at that moment she was on busy then she bring me out to go to a store that sell so many beautiful paper lantern, so sorry after years.. there is no more some shops that sell that thing on my hometown, but in bigger city still have.
Although in Indonesia Mid-Autumn Festival wasn't a national event but as we are in the same continent - Asia, then the festivities still felt here..

I have make a card for my parents to celebrated it and not forget to share some picture about that yummy Moon cakes that inspired me to bring my Tilda to celebrated this festival with Chinese traditional clothing ..

I made my card with my fave shape, and using Boo Bunny paper with autumn sense.
some of that paper I cut it out and arrange them for scene, the tree is actually is the image of the paper I do some embossing with Stampendous EP Aged taupe and Versamark pen to have more gorgeous effect.

Really I am so glad to invite Tilda to join in this festive, and she look so beautiful even she wear that traditional cloth, that's made me too more carefully to coloring her ;) and give her a pair of pearl earrings ..
and put the words : Made with Love as well as a Chinese letters : "Ai" that means : LOVE

Here are some pictures from the other sides, some dies I used are DooHickey and Lifestyle circles.
Lace from my stash and flowers are Prima Marketing.

Oh I am sorry that I cant take my own picture about the moon cake, because the cake run out quickly by my kids, hubby, my father and mother too .. LoL 
but hope you still have a plenty of that yummy smell .. :D (naughty me!)
and if you still want to read about  Stories of the Mid-Autumn Festival you can read HERE , there are a nice story telling about very traditional culture.

That's all my story and creating my friends, hope you will have wonderful days ..
