Blue is the colour...

Hello sweet peeps,
We were away for the weekend to a breathtakingly beautiful island near Bali called Lombok. It was just so therapeutic to see just the sea and water. It is fairly untouched compared to Bali and that made it even more enjoyable. We stayed in a resort that had all natural decor and that made it even more befitting. 
Now to my card - this is another Diwali card for an order. The lady ordered seven cards but has increased them to 20!!! I bought these Anne Griffin papers from the scrap booking store last week and have added some silvery dots on the paper and a sequined paisley which seems slightly mismatched in the picture. In real life how ever it looks quite nice.


 Down below is a picture of the ocean that I clicked from the car on the way back to the airport.

Another shot of the mountains and the sea from the car...

I will enter my card in the following challenges:

Wish you a happy Monday,
Monica
