Girl's Night Out

Coffee of the Day - Dulce de Leche

Hold on, the weekend is coming! it's just right around the corner - I can almost see it! :)

I've been busy doing a lot of 'behind the scenes' crafting for upcoming DT projects, but did manage to squeeze in a bit of fun time to make this card I'm sharing today. a few days ago was 'National Margarita Day.' since that happens to be one of my fave drinks, I couldn't let this special day go by without making a card to commemorate it! :)


When I saw this cutey image in Sandra Caldwell's Etsy shop the other day, I knew it would be perfect for the occasion. the colors and patterns in my card are a bit brighter and bolder than I usually use, but I figure that the girls are out for a night at their fave Mexican food restaurant and have put on their 'night on the town' clothes!  grins!

papers are from the Basic Grey Grand Bazaar collection, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, rhinestone flourish was bought at Michael's (I colored the crystals with a sharpie to match), ribbons & trims are from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and buttons are from my vintage stash. I am sorry that I don't know where I picked up the fun little charm. when I get them, I put them all in a mason jar for storage. I did add some shimmerz paint on a few parts of the image for accent.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a most fabulous day!

Those girls have certainly had a party, haven't they? Love the use of a shaped image instead of a square. Thanks for sharing your project with us at The House That Stamps Built sketch challenge this week.

Fun!! I think the bright colors are fabulous and perfect for your theme. But by the look on their faces, those ladies are NOT going anywhere else after this stop. I think they've had a few margaritas already. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
