Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I wasn't going to make a card for today, I was actually just going to post about some yummy cupcakes that I made, but I found this super cute svg set a couple nights ago and I couldn't resist!  
The lime in the sombrero is from Lettering Delights Cut-it-Set called, Cinco de Mustache. He was cut at 3.25" tall. The card base was made with a pennant shape from Friends Fur-ever cut-it-set. The base pennant was sized to 5" tall and 3.75" wide. I used the shadow layer feature in Make-the-Cut to create the base of the card, sized at 4.25" x 5.5". Then I welded two of them together at the top. The " Ole' " letters came from the same set as the lime. I joined them to the front layer pennant.
The papers are from PaperTrey Ink, Core'dinations, and Recollections.
The limes eye's are from Peachy Keen Stamps, PK-294 The Cornies 1 1/8"
stamp set.

So... shall we go back to those yummy Margarita White Chocolate Coconut Key Lime cupcakes that I was talking about?
I made these last year for Cinco de Mayo (will be making them again this year) and never got a chance to share them. I found the recipe here!
...and they are so fun to make and eat!

Here is a picture of the spread that we had last year.
Home made beef rolled tacos, chips, and all the fixings! Hungry yet?

I hope you have a wonderful day & Happy Cinco de Mayo!
