Laissez le bon temps rouler!

translation...Let The Good Times Roll! Hello and happy weekend!!! I know it's a bit early to start celebrating Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday falls on Feb. 21st) but when I saw this week's challenge over at A Muse Studio's Challenge Blog, make a card/project with the traditional colors of Mardi Gras, PURPLE-YELLOW/GOLD-GREEN, I simply had to join in the fun! Then I saw the new "Cooking With Cricut" challenge #73 using a really great sketch and Boom! That was all the inspiration I needed. So here is my card for these 2 aforementioned challenges and I hope YOU will join in the fun too!!
In addition to the sketch, you must choose any 3 of 9 different embellishments to add to your card, mine being brads, stickles and fibers/ribbon. The Cricut cut I used is from the Sentimentals cartridge and I found it to be perfect for Mardi Gras theme. "Celebrate" sentiment from MCT Teeny Tag Greetings
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a FABULOUS weekend friends!
