Challenges, My Favorite Things

Words 2 Craft By #38 Celebrations

There is another fun challenge over at Words 2 Craft By this month. The quote is from Mark Twain about Mardi Gras. I do love the colors of the celebration and I tried to incorporate them into my card. I love all the costumes (some outrageous). I used a stamp from Dylusions (Dyan Reavelry) and gold embossed it (one of the colors of Mardi Gras) and watercolored with distress inks. I die cut a bunch of little flowers to give her an amazing hat.

This was totally out of my comfort zone. But I loved every minute of how it took on its own flavor. Lots of sparkle and shine! The glitter paper is from DCWV and I also used Wink of Stella glitter markers on her lips and eyebrows.

Thanks so much for stopping by and Let the Good Times Roll!
