World Card Making Day PTI Challenge #2: Mexico
The point of this challenge was to "travel" to Mexico - utilizing vibrant colors!!! I tried 2 techniques from the fabulous Dawn McVey's blog - the ruffles to mimick the ruffles on the Mexican dresses I found as inspiration and the flower to represent all the colors!!! I wished I had satin ribbon in all the different colors but as I didn't I used the luscious white satin ribbon I just received from Stampin' Up!
The inspiration photo is from allposters.com - I really enjoyed these challenges! They made me get out my sewing machine to attach the ruffles so now that I have it out I'll try to sew on some other cards soon! The "Australia" card is coming too!
