All Night Long

It's Wednesday, which means that it's time for another Stampotique Designers challenge. This time around Maria is our host, and she has challenged us to show her some favours.

''We all like to party! A sweet treat for your friends, family or co workers is always welcome! But the message is the most important. I challenge you to create a party/lunch favour. Could be any theme: halloween, christmas, birthday theme or just because. ''

Please remember you can use any stamps now for our challenge, but only one entry per person.  We will draw 2 random winners on the first week of our challenge in October from all those who played in the September challenges.

As everyone in the whole world knows( even my husband knows), Stampotique have just released some brilliant new stamps, and one of my favourites (yes I know they are all my favourites) is Fiesta the donkey by Kira Nichols. Now for some reason I seem to think in song lyrics - don't know if this is a medical condition or just me :o), and as I'm a very old person some of the songs go back quite a way.
Anyway Fiesta got me humming the old Lionel Richie tune All Night Long. I had to Google the exact words cos in my head it's always been 'Were gonna party, da da dum, Fiesta, Forever.... 
So... if anyone knows what Karamu is, please let me know :o).
My box has been made following the tutorial at Passionately Artistic . This is so simple that yes, even I could do it!
I used plain black card and stencilled on the silver and gold stars in Posca pen. Fiesta and Lionel (the bird) have been coloured in Prismas. This was such fun to do and I wouldn't hesitate to make more, which is unusual for me as I don't often make the same thing twice. 
Fiesta 4026 can come and live with you if you contact Stampotique Originals 
Please check out the wonderful design team samples, then join us and make a favour.
Thanks very much for looking x
