Shopping Our Stash #291
Who knew I had a Mardi Gras stamp? That helped me to create, and join in the fun at Shopping Our Stash # 291.
The card base is a mauve from Bazzill, with a layer of Bo Bunny polka dot on top. I found a length of metallic ric rac, which I thought would help to embellish. Next came my sentiment that was stamped from an Avery Elle set called Circle it Clear. My main image is an unmounted stamp, and I am clueless as to the maker. That was colored with Copics and Wink of Stella was applied. My dots and swirls are stamped with my trusty stubby stamps from Stamps by Judith, which sit on my desk at all times. Diamond Stickles were added to the swirls. Next, that was cut out with Spellbinders Dahlia dies, and while still in the die, sponged with Hello Honey ink from SU!. Assorted gems were added for the Mardi Gras bling bling!
Inside the card is the saying Laissez les bons temps rouler, which is french for "let the good times roll". This is a popular saying during this celebration.
Expecting another 72 degree day here in PA, today. May just have to step away from the craft room for a bit and take it in. Enjoy the day, what ever you do!
This card made top 3 and I greatly appreciate it!
