My card today uses Rio and as soon as I saw her in her fabulous party dress Lionel Richie started singing, "We're going to party! karamu! fiesta! forever!" in my head and I had to run with that vibe for the card, LOL! So I found just the perfect papers that were nice and bright and still had that girly girl flair then blinged it up with some pretty blue jewels. Now don't forget that Rio also comes with a funky little bat friend but I think I scared him off with all these bright colors and he didn't quite make it onto my card. ;)

Okey dokey, now you'll want to pop on over to Catherine's blog for the next stop on the hop!
Have fun!
