Mardi Gras card
One of my girl friends that lives in a different states but we always try to get together at least once a year, right now we are at 18 months, but next year we have a get together planned.
But she absolutely loves Mardi Gras and has gone many many times. So I made this card to send to her.
I was inspired to make the card for her when I saw the "SHOPPING OUR STASH" Challenge #291 was Mardi Gras. So I thought of Deb immediately.
I really dug into my stash for this. I had a string of beads (with a couple missing) and these masks in a baggy of what I had labeled as "different holidays" So glad I'm a hoarder of some things because without this I never would have made this card. I just used some bright card stock to put the masks and beads on and then kept matting in more colors. I had this piece of purple embossed card stock in my card making drawer so it was perfect to attach to my card base and then add the rest.
Thanks for the challenge, I enjoyed using up this old stash.

I am also going to enter this card in the Anything Goes - Challenge #84 at "SCRAPPING 4 FUN CHALLENGES" You could enter a card, layout, mixed media, mini album, canvas what ever you like to do. I was really pleased in the different look for what I usually make in cards and all the bright colors so I decided to enter this card. The great thing about this challenge is that you can have unto 4 entries for each challenge.
