SOS Headquarters

Hello everyone: Last September 15th. was Mexico's Independence Day so I decided to celebrate by creating this card using this sweet, little girl dressed in the typical outfit of a Mexican Dancer.  If you've never seen these dancers in action or heard this music, I hope you enjoy this little clip in which you can see this beautiful, amazing dresses and hear the happy, energetic dances of the State of Guadalajara, so I invite you to click HERE for a glimpse of some of the traditional folklore dancing of the Country of my birth.

The SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge for this week is "WELCOME HOME" and that means your projects can be about the place where you live or where you came from, in my case I came from Mexico as a young bride back in 1973.

This super sweet little girl's name is ROSA which means Rose, from Moo's Digital Pencil, I love the beautiful, flowing dress that can be colored in just about any color of the rainbow.
The lamps are from an old Flourishes set called "Pinwheels and Popsicles"


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

I just punched some scraps of green and red foil paper, stamped the sentiment from Power Poppy called "Marcella's Mixed Tape 1" and a couple of fireworks from Altenew's set called "Pyrotechnics"

I would like to enter the following challenges.

I just love the vibrant colors! I have always had a special appreciation of your culture, for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the time I spent stationed in Arizona. Thanks for the clip!

Oh, she's so cute, twirling in her skirt! Terrific interior as well (as always!) and amazing coloring!!! Husband is sleeping next to me, otherwise I'd click the link. I absolutely love the Mexican culture! My cousin lived with us growing up and we used to go to his abuela's (when I was a kid, I called her "Wella"-- thought that was her name!)... she lived across the field from us, and her house was filled with traditional Mexican culture! My eyes were just 😍 and that was it. I've loved the entire Mexican culture--food, traditions, music... ever since!
