Going Rogue with Stampotique

Gingersnap Creations just released their latest Random Redhead Challenge and it's "Use Your Favorite Paper". Stampotique is the sponsor this month so I headed to my stash of their stamps first and picked out "Head" from the pile.

Now, my favorite paper is Eggplant Moroccan Floral from Daisy D's which is sadly gone now. I bought up a bunch of this stuff before they closed up shop.

The pattern on Head's shirt made me think about another piece of paper that I love but couldn't figure out what to do with it. This seemed like a good project.

So now I have purple and green I thought Mardi Gras. I added the jester hat from the soon-to-be-released Carnival Dreams mini from RRD and the Mardi Gras sentiment and it was all set!
