The challenge at Faery Ink this month is Mardi Gras
I searched Google for Mardi Gras papers and found a great digital paper shop Betsy Rainbow. Some of the other cards I have put on my blog over the last few days have used paper from there as I finished those cards first.
I have used the lovely Faery Ink digi "Gabbie Mardi Gras" and coloured her with markers.
Betsy Rainbow BR310 Mardi Gras papers
Swirly ribbons from Betsy Rainbow BR327 Mardi Gras clip art
Betsy Rainbow PR149 Ric Rac borders
Added pearls. (The people on the floats at Mardi Gras throw necklaces and other things into the crowds.)
I hope you will go over to Faery Ink and see the lovely cards by the design team and join in the challenge.

Welcome to my blog
I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
