Diwali Card

This is the first time I've made a card for the Hindu festival of light, Diwali. It's for a work colleague. As it's not my culture, I had to do a bit of research into what would be appropriate - not the best occasion to try anything too cutting edge, I felt! I was lucky enough to find this blog by Chaitali who has created Diwali electronic cutting files and shared them freely.

I cut the lamp with Coredinations cs and embossed and sanded the base. I added glitter to the flame. a scalloped circle, lilac pearls and some paisley patterned paper printed from a Docrafts CD.
