Last year, we designed a greeting card to mark the occasion.It’s really important to us that important days are marked in the correct way. Designing a card or wallpaper is the perfect way to show your feelings about something and really gives you a chance to express your feelings.

The raw materials
The base image for the design is an illustration ‘Diagonal Color Stripes’ by Miamiamia. I used the ‘Image -> Adjustments -> Replace Color’ command in Photoshop to convert the yellow stripe in the original image to a white colored, ‘brushed’ stripe.

The quote “Freedom lies in being bold” is attributed to Robert Frost, the famous American poet (1874-1963). The slogan ‘Jai Ho!’ needs no introduction.
