Tribal Dance Fun...

This one took FOREVER to color, but it turned out so cute I can't complain! This card uses a whole series of digital and regular stamps from Hambo Stamps. The big jungle background is a digital stamp...all others are regular rubber stamps. I wish you could see the Spica marker bling on the fire and the looks so sparkly....

The sentiment that goes with this card is meant to be an inside and out set, but it took me so long to color the front, I couldn't bring myself to cover any of it up! So....I put them both on the inside with the scary totem as well...
