Mardi Gras Time

Happy Mardi Gras to everyone! It's always such a fun time...and tomorrow is lent so basically, I have to live it up now!

I was inspired by the Unscripted Sketches Sketch #146. I used RRD's new Carnival Dreams mini set for the focal image and sentiment and the flower from Just Sayin' as embellishment. The colors are those of Mardi Gras itself - purple, green and golden yellow!

Mardi Gras
Stamps: loving couple and sentiment from Carnival Dreams mini and flower from Just Sayin' (Rogue Redhead Designs)
Paper: scrap of yellow paper (Provocraft maybe?)
Cardstock: Garden Green, Orchid Opulence, Whisper White and More Mustard (Stampin Up)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Copics: E00, E02, E11, G05, Go7, G09, V04, V06, V09, y19, YR23, and YR24
Embellishments: 1/4" lilac ribbon; 5/8" see-through purple ribbon
Tools: oval cutter (Creative Memories)

I really liked the dimensionality that the flowers gave this card.


I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
