Are you ready for a FIESTA???

Tomorrow is a big day (read: party time) for some people. Being part Mexican myself, I enjoy the festivities that go along with Cinco de Mayo. Here in Northern VA and DC there are lots of celebrations and it looks like the weather will be nice.
So here is a card using the A Muse Cinco de Mayo release (thank you Linda!). I really like mariachi music, and so do my children. We will listen to it every so often, especially when I am making Mexican food. This mariachi guy is so great, too. I was insired by the wonderful Melinda at my LSS whose sample showed the party lights colored in a similar fashion - it makes them glow so nice. My husband, who always wants to see what I make, said, "Who'd go to a party in the desert?" Well, when he opened it, he smiled and said the cacti provided a clever hiding place for musicians. I think this card would be great as an invitation - all the info would fit under the mariachis.
I may have another Cinco de Mayo card (or two) tomorrow to share with you, mis amigos.

Card info: images and paper by A Muse, ribbon by May Arts, Sakura stardust pen (for the shiny parts of the pants!), Prismacolor markers, circle punch
