MY FIRST DIWALI CARD!!!!!

Hello Everybody! I know Diwali, The Festival Of Lights, is gone pass.... Yet, the Challenge at our very own CraftyJC Challenge blog, is helping me light up the spirit for the whole of this month..... The challenge is to create a Diwali or an ethnic Indian card..... What more could I ask for! I am in love with anything that lets me create something Indian, within my capabilities, of course!

I made a card for Diwali, which I had not otherwise... :( I really thank the team at CraftyJC for putting it up as a challenge for the month.... So here it is....

The name "Diwali" is a contraction of "Deepavali", which translates into "row of lamps". Diwali involves the lighting of small clay lamps filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil.gift for diwali to employees
