Guacamole Birthday - Stampin' Up! Taco Fiesta

  I used the fantastic clean and simple sketch over at CAS Colours & Sketches to make this fun birthday card!  The Taco Fiesta set continues to delight me!

   I loved the sketch with 3 images down at the bottom of the card front and I thought that the smaller images in the Taco Fiesta set would be perfect.  As it is a clean and simple challenge I went with a limited color palette and didn't add any ribbon or baker's twine....which was hard but I resisted lol!

  The base is Basic White thick cardstock, then I added a strip of the 2022-2024 In Color DSP in a Parakeet Party polka dot pattern.  

  The images are all stamped in Memento black and then colored in with Stampin' Blends markers then cut out with a Stylish Shapes die circle.  I popped the images on dimensionals onto the DSP.  

  For the tortilla chips I stamped them on a small piece of scrap paper then colored and fussy cut them.  I added them to edge of the guacamole bowl with the top on popped on trimmed dimensional.

  Finally the sentiment was added while holding my breath that I wouldn't goof up right at the end.  The ink is a little darker on one end of the sentiment but that can't be changed now!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
