This awesome card, my first one from Antigua and Barbuda, comes from Monique.

Antigua, also known as Wadadli, is an island in the West Indies, in the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean region, the main island of the country of Antigua and Barbuda. Antigua means “ancient” in Spanish and was named by Christopher Columbus after an icon in Seville Cathedral, Santa Maria de la Antigua—St. Mary of the Old Cathedral. The name Wadadli comes from the native Indian inhabitants and means approximately “our own”. The economy is mainly reliant on tourism, with the agricultural sector serving the domestic market.
