Ay Caramba!

Hey all and good day to you! I have another card to share. I made this using the MFTWSC108 sketch from My Favorite Things:

 Here is the inside:

And the sketch:

As you can see I turned it on it's side. I started making this card last night. I got as far as heat embossing, coloring, fussy cutting and paper piecing the main panel. (Ever try to paper piece a flamenco dress? Yeah. It's hard!) I started seeing double, and at that point I only had one glass of wine! I called it a night last night but finished it up today. I used one of my newly purchased Die-Namics on this - Retro Squares. (Groovy!) I even made my own flower. I found some white crepe paper that I had, I don't know, since I got married? I cut a small strip and misted it with Glimmer Mist. Once it was dry, I hand cut 3 circles, decreasing in size. (I didn't want them perfectly round because I wanted that 'wonky' look to them.) I took a pink marker and brushed the edges, glued them together, and added the maracas that I colored and fussy cut. Finished the inside, and, Ole'! LOL!

Glad I got this card finished and posted. Now I'm all set to watch Downton Abbey tonight! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a good evening!
