Nowrūz is March 21, 2015 and this card with fish, the sign of Pisces which the sun is leaving, is the perfect way to greet it.
It also features Nowruz Mabrook on vellum attached to yellow cardstock.
Nowruz is Iranian New Years, an official holiday lasting for 13 days during which most national functions including schools are off and festivities take place.
Haft Sîn (Persian: هفت سین) or the seven 'S's is a major traditional table setting of Nowruz, the traditional Iranian spring celebration. The haft sin table includes seven items starting with the letter 'S' or Sīn (س) in the Persian alphabet.
As an essential object of the Nowruz table, a goldfish in a bowel (symbolizing life within life) is also "very ancient and meaningful" and with Zoroastrian connection.
The card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and is on beige cardstock and comes with a beige envelope in a protective plastic sleeve.
I made it in my non-smoking, pet free craft room.
Merci for looking!
