World Card Making Day meets Freshly Made Sketches

I am a member of this wonderful community of creative stampers.  It is called StampNation and it is a place where stampers communicate and share.  It is international, in that we have several international members, and one of their design team members is international as well.  I have done two card swaps with the group, and I was lucky enough to meet two of the New Hampshire members in person.

On Saturday, they celebrated World Card Making Day by posting inspirational photos from various countries throughout the day.  Unfortunately, I could not participate because I was attending a quilting class (more on that later).  But after the class I checked in and saw the photos, the design team inspiration, and the StampNation member's submissions.  So creative!  So fun!  I am continuing to peruse them today, as members are still loading up their creations. 

For Mexico, I decided to use the Freshly Made Sketch . . .

Along with the inspirational photo from StampNation for Mexico . . .

 And I came up with this . . .

The paper and stickers for this came from a "prize patrol" giveaway that I received from Stampin' Up.  The colors seemed perfect.
