Let's Party - Heart2Heart - Sept Week 1 South of the Border

This is my Design Team Card for Heart2Heart "South of the Border". My daughter had gotten this adorable Hero Arts Fiesta stamp set for Mother's Day and this theme was  perfect.  The stamp set also came with a beautiful frame die and all the dies for each stamp.  It wasn't until I did all the fussy-cutting and realized I had the dies; however, I'm actually very pleased with it because I could cut closer to the outlines of the images. 

The focal point was made using two stamps (Dancer and Musician) and masking them to give them dimension.  Colored with a variety of Copic sketch alcohol-based pens, fussy-cut, layered with poppy cardstock and adhered with thin foam sheet between the focal point and the background paper. Framed the background paper with poppy cardstock and then decided to decorate the edge with one of my rectangular dies.    

There are so many pieces to this set and it was difficult to choose which adorable image I would use...the Mexican birdie was adorable, so just colored with same colors and set him on top of the "Let's Party" Sentiment.  Added some glitter flowers around the sentiment and upper left-hand corner using small gems for the center and a few scattered around. 

Inside of card used another one of the stamps in the same set, stamped a banner, colored and adhered to the border on the inside of the card.  

Close up views of the masking and coloring of the Mexican dancers, musician and Birdie, along with random placing of the glittery flowers and gems.

Oh, this is so cute... those mice are so sweet and represent a southern country's dancing party perfectly. That is exactly the image I had in mind when I saw your card so you captured the theme perfectly. Bold colours, interest and the high skirts... awesome!
