Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge!

This is the first time I am participating in the Sketch and Product challenge by Limelight Papercrafts.

This is what I did for the above challenge.
I used card sheets and marbled sheets which are handmade from Sri Aurobindo Handmade paper, Pondicherry. This paper craft kit has about 40 sheets. Each paper is different from the other. There are many choices like dark sheets, pale sheets, card sheets, marbled sheets, mottled sheets just to name a few. What luck! My cousin gifted me from her trip to Pondicherry. Really I must visit this beautiful place sometime.
Oh by the way did I mention what was the topic? Here it is....You are supposed to create a card using something that reminds you of the holidays like Christmas,etc., using the following sketch. We just finished celebrating Diwali in India. So I created a card for Diwali, the festival of lights!
For embellishments, I used a sequinned flower that I bought from a craft store and fevicryl sparklers to give a beautiful outlining to the lamp! Hope you all like it!
