As it was drizzling in Chennai on the evening of Karthigai ,I decided to do the Rangoli using my daughter's writing board and placed it inside my house.

Sumathi, nice idea to use the writing board.
Glittering bold colored kolam looks like a modern padikolam, The inner lotus is adding the charm.u could have arranged thre diyas also in a kolam design.
Nowadays we get diyas made of glass, porcelain and other materials. In our time we used only brass, silver and clay diyas. (This Karthigai I was little busy, let me decorate my old Diyas and present when I get time.)

Not only the diyas but also their reflection on the floor looks so very pretty - your rangoli is also bold and colourful Smile
