The Outlawz Friday Colouring Challenge - Cinco de Mayo

Happy Friday and welcome to my very first Design Team Post for the Outlawz Friday Colouring Challenge. Carla, our DT leader and former fellow DT member for the Sketch Saturday challenge, invited me to join a few weeks ago and I thought why not give it a go! LOL As I'm sure you all know I love my colouring and I always enter their challenges anyway so I thought it would be a great opportunity to practise my colouring even more.

Today's challenge is called "Cinco de Mayo", which is a celebration in Mexico to commemorate the day that the Mexican army won against French Forces in the Battle of Puebla in 1892 (Yes I did have to google it!). We would like to see any Mexican themed projects from you for this challenge - you could use the colours from the flag, Mexican food, culture etc.

I chose to go with a fabulous image from The Paper Shelter, entitled Los Mariachis, which was just perfect for this challenge. I used the three main colours from the Mexican flag - green, white and red as well to make a celebration card.
