Dia de los Muertos

Here's a quick and cute card that combines some great Hambly Studio Overlays from Paper Temptress to make a bright and fun festive card for Dia de los Muertos.  Some time ago, I shared a card and talked about Dia de los Muertos (and I am sure I have shared many more cards, but at least once I talked about the actual holiday, which is quite popular where I grew up in south Texas).  
I am using a cute wood mounted stamp, it's a brand I don't know, but it was just a dollar or so and makes the cutest image!

It works perfect with these bright and beautiful papers from Paper Temptress for this holiday.  I started with Basis Black for my background.  Again, when I don't have cardstock that gives me 6" cards, I just take an 8.5x11" sheet, fold it half and make a 5.5" square card like this one shown.  I then added super cute layers of Hambly Studio overlays.  The first layer is pink bows called Pink Bow Ties.  Then I made a 3 layer sandwich of Neenah solar white, my stamped image, also on Neenah solar white, and a cut out from the Hambly Studio Overlay called Urban Chic Frames in lime.
