Drinking of You (TCP Challenge 208)

Today's card is for this week's TCP Tuesday (TCPTUES208). Lori is our hostess this week with a fabulous color challenge.  

Since the colors said Cinco de Mayo I got a little scrappy with this one. I actually used four different stamp sets and two CutUps to create the scene. I created a tiki bar by replacing Sprinkle in the Gimme Some Sugar set with the bunny from the Aye, Aye Captain set. To create the "grass" roof of the the tiki hut, I used the Pom Pom Flower CutUps. After die cutting, I cut the piece right down the middle lengthwise with scissors. I then cut one of the sides into three seperate pieces graduating in size to create rows, curling up the ends for texture. I placed the bunny portion behind the bar and gave him a little salt, lime and tequila from the Hola Tequila Stamp set for a a te-killya-shot. The sentiment came from the Toni's Tea Set and I stamped it onto a piece from the Circus Panels CutUps.
