Más vale tarde que nunca

I took a break from holiday cards to make an early (or late) Día de Muertos card featuring Dilly Beans Stamp #340, Frida's sugar skull. I practiced my Spanish (well, sorta!) and was inspired by two of my favorite Spanish-language blogs, Dilo en Español and Latina Crafter.

The sentiment is from the Queremos Pastel set by Dilo en Español Stamps. My husband picked out this cool sugar skull Washi tape for me at the craft store and I have had so much fun using it. The 3D skull was a gift from a friend. The patterned papers are all from Graphic 45's Fashionista collection.

Mom sent me some colored embossing markers (Marvy) and I just had to try them out! I colored the image with those markers (black, red, green, white) & Copics, and heat-embossed it with clear powder. I like the raised effect.

We're hoping to get to Mexico next year, for our family's semi-regular get-together. I really need to practice my Spanish!
