Let the Good Times Roll!  LOVE that I’ve gotten to play in TWO Splitcoaststamper challenges this week!  This card is for their Inspiration Challenge #218 found here.  I used the first sample picture as my inspiration.


Mardi Gras is this month, and these fun images and sentiment are from Flourishes “Mardi Gras” set.


Portions of the parade leader’s leg and umbrella have been cut out.  I think it makes him look like he’s walking right out and off of the card!

Now I’ve never been to Mardi Gras, but I do know that pink is not one of the traditional colors for it.  But it’s one of my favorites, so there you go!  I have heard that anything goes… so surely some pink would be allowed!  hehe  I think just crafting about it is more my speed!

Good Times!  Happy Crafting!  GO COLTS!!


Stamps: Flourishes “Mardi Gras”

Papers: Papertrey Ink True Black, Sweet Blush and Raspberry Fizz; DP is 7 Gypsies “Flocked TOBAL”

Inks: Memento “Tuxedo Black”

Accessories:  Feathers; Glitter Brads
