Diwali Cards - Day 3 (Bonus card)

Hello Everyone!

If you have just dropped you can view all my Diwali cards here.

I'm here again today with another card. I had this idea last night while going to sleep. I saw that the ColorMe Challenge for this week was bright and festive. So did not want to loose it and thus made a card as soon as I got up. 

Here is the color combo they offered this week for the challenge
 Here is the card I created

I was inspired to do this card as the color combo and the stamp set I used reminds me of Rangoli designs. is a folk art from India in which patterns are created on the floor in living rooms or courtyards using materials such as colored rice, dry flour, colored sand or flower petals. It is usually made during Diwali (Deepawali), Onam, Pongal and other Indian festivals. They are meant to be sacred welcoming areas for the Hindu deities generation to the next, keeping both the art form and the tradition alive. Diwali being the most auspicious, people draws elaborate designs.

For the card, the colorful background is created using Papertrey Ink - Guidelines 1,2 sets. Attached it to a yellow panel. Attached yellow and green ribbon across and adhered the entire panel on card base using foam sheet (saw this trick in Jennifer Mcguire's videos' & I think it is useful). Made the lamp and flam out of glitter paper and adhered it on Spellbinders - Ironwork die. Cut a simple tag and stamped the "Happy Diwali" sentiment using StudioG alphabet stamps. Attached the tag to the ribbon using glue dots

So I'm submitting this card for this week's Color Me! Challenge - CMCC#95
I hope you all liked it. I would love to hear back from you all. Thank you very much for taking your time to notice it. Hope to hear again from all of  u soon. Till then take care. :)
