Created a similar project, Mardi Gras Clebrate Today Card, like this last wk. You can click here to see my Mardi Gras Celebrate Today Card.

Made this Tag along with 4 others for swaps at Dallas Stampers get together Mon 3/3. Unfortunately the get together was cancelled due to weather. Sun was out here but the roads were still icy in areas. I've decided to use them to give them to friends.

Used Destinations Cricut cartridge like on other project for Mardi Gras words. I used regular purple cardstock and the gold glitter cardstock instead of glitter cardstock for both. Used Stampendous Halloween stamp, Halloween Magic, which like last time I indicated looked appropriate for Mardi Gras since ther girl image had a mask. Was commented last time that stamped image would be wonderful for coloring so I colored with Crayola pencil colors & some on computer. Used a free Mardi Gras background frame image. Used green foil cardstock for base. Had enough green foil cardstock to make 3 so I went to Hobby Lobby where paper & cardstock is 50% off this wk. Bought the green foil cardstock as well as some more glitter cardstock. Added ribbon.

digi: free Mardi Gras framed background image from Internet
