Mardis Gras 2010

Okay, so there's this football team playing today called the New Orleans Saints. Have ya heard of them? *wink*....anyway....I am so not a football fan. Not even the tiniest bit. But, since my dear friend Michelle (Stamper's Dream) lives in Louisiana, and Mardis Gras is right around the corner, I thought I'd make this fun card so I could avoid all the white noise that encompasses the den when there's a football game going on. *grin*

Isn't this Mardis Gras Martini Glass (Impression Obsession) fun? I LOVE the music notes in the glass. I colored it with Copics and added some bling with my Quickie Glue Pen and Ultrafine Transparent Glitter.

For the bg, I used the new music Cover a Card Backgrounds by Impression Obsession, and the fleur de lis Cuttlebug embossing folder. The borders were made with Spellbinder's Fleur de Lis Borderabilities, and an EK Success border punch. The ribbon is May Arts, the button, PTI, and the Rhinestone is Kaisercraft. Finally, the paper I used is Majestic Purple Dark, Black and Simply Smooth Prismatics.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend!
Happy Stamping!

Well, I love ya even if you don't like my Saints. They kicked bootie last night, didn't they? That's probably why I didn't see this awesome card until today. LOL!

LOVE the rich Mardi Gras colors and fleur de lis. You definitely captured the feel of the Mardi Gras spirit going on there. Beautifully done, Tosh! :)
