It's Fiesta Time.......

I have been invited to be a guest designer for Catered Crop.  What an amazing opportunity!!!  I have admired Linda's blog and her ART for a long time.  Until recently I admired from afar, because I thought I could never measure up.  But then I thought why not?  I began following some of her design recipes and linking up with the results.  Sunday morning when I checked to see what the next recipe was.....there it was!!!  My name among those invited to join the design team with a card for the next recipe.  WOW!!! 

Now I can proudly display this button!!!

Catered Crop

The recipe for this week is Buntings and Banners.
I checked out Pinterest for inspiration and found this picture.  I love the little banner on this cake.  I was thinking PARTY when I designed my card and it was perfect.  

I love this Texana Designs Chili Pepper Stamp.  It is so FESTIVE with all the swirls.  It is perfect for a FIESTA.   

To create my bunting, I used this Martha Stewart Border Punch and a strip of Vellum

 Then I cut the border into strips that became my baby bunting.  So tiny and delicate.

I ran the strips through my sewing machine to joint them together.

Once I joined them together I trimmed the top off the strips.

I stamped the Chili Peppers 3 times

And cut them out to form a border. 

 I colored them with Watercolor Pencils and  embellished them with Stickles to add some Festive Party BLING. 

I finished out the card by writing F I E S T A on the bunting with Stickles.

Are you ready for a PARTY?
