Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler!

The good times are rollin' in the Studio today!  Happy Mardi Gras, Y'all!  I know in other areas of the world, today is just Tuesday; but here in New Orleans, it's Fat Tuesday!  The rainy, cold weather along with my rheumatoid arthritis kept me in this year, but I'm enjoying watching the parades on tv and eating King Cake!

I just wanted to share some Carnival time fun with a card I made yesterday.  I hope you enjoy!

The dies I used for this card were the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis and Venetian Accents.  And yes, the only reason I bought the Venetian Accents set was because of that cool "Mardi Gras" mask.  It's been in my stash for a while and I've been patiently waiting to use it!  The purple harlequin paper is from Stamping Station and it's called Mardi Gras Purple.

I thought I'd enter this blingy, glitzy bit of Mardi Gras into a few challenges so I could share some of the fun! And "Anything Goes" best describes the feeling and gaiety of this wonderful season!
