Stamps of Life Pinata stamps and dies for Cinco de Mayo and Double Trouble Guest Designer

Welcome to my final installment as April's Guest Designer for Double Trouble Challenge #165 "SomeThing, AnyThing, EveryThing". This Challenge runs from Monday, April 29th thru Sunday, May 4th.  The Twisted Sister twist is to use an image from the prompt which celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  I searched my stash and found this adorable pinata set from Stamps of Life. 

Here is the prompt for Challenge #165 for more details and to enter follow the link.

I used several dies for this project besides the Stamps of Life Pinata set, I used a Catherine Pooler slimline die. I actually cut the inside to create a frame. 

I chose to use an Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge sketch for the Double Dare.

I purchased the set second hand.  I was thrilled to learn the odd die included with the set was the bonus fringe die!  My new favorite.  It just made this card. Apparently SOL sell a larger version independently but this one was a mini included with the monthly subscription.
