PTI WCMD Challenge #2: Mexico

This challenge is to create a card inspired by anything Mexico (uh, except the velvet paintings of Elvis... please!)  Here is my card for challenge #2:
Inspired by all those crazy colors you can find there. Mexico has got to be one of my favorite places on this planet. Thats a little tid-bit you may not know about me. I love it there. The ocean, scuba diving, the food, the siestas and lets not forget the soda! There is extra sugar in those glass jars my friends, and it is SOOOO good!

Ok. Onto this card. I used guidelines (uh, it was Nicole's idea) and added some Background Basics: Retro lines to go around the tiles. A little trim cut with some decor scissors, a simple sentiment and a fun button/ribbon combo. OH! and lets not forget a rhinestone people. There is some bling in Mexico. You just have to know where to look ; )

Thanks for stopping by. One more challenge card left and then I'm going to eat ice cream!
