ICRCAUT02: Stripy Sketch + DIWALI Creations

Hey Everyone!

The INDIAN CRAFT ROOM is has a new Coaster Rides challenge!  All about Diwali!  
Let me till you bit more about Diwali...

Diwali is also known as the "festival of lights!"  It's an Indian festival marking the triumph of GOOD over EVIL.  During the days leading to Diwali, families celebrate by taking part in traditional activities in their homes and neighborhoods.  Some of these activities include festive fireworks, sharing of sweets, creating rangoli designs, and lighting up oil lamps called diyas aka LIGHTS.....LOTS AND LOTS OF LIGHTS!

Here is our challenge...
ICRCAUT02: Stripy Sketch + DIWALI Creations

Celebrations are usually started off with a Ganesh Puja.  So, instead of diyas, I decided to use a pic of Ganesh,  who is the God of good beginnings and remover of obstacles.   Normally my pics are taken indoors using natural light, but had to wait for the sun to come up (behind the trees).  It wasn't coming up fast enough, so decided to take the pic outside, which did help!

Here is my inspiration card...
