Let the Good Times Roll!

Well, today is Mardi Gras, so I thought it was best to post a card celebrating the holiday! I used Beate's weekend sketch as my starting point. I didn't end up with the exact proportions because I wanted to keep the masks in 2x2 squares. I stamped the masks, then coloured them in with gel pens (we all have them, and have for so long, it's time to start using them, lol!). Next, I wanted even more sparkle, so I inked the squares with versamark and then embossed Pearly Sparkle embossing powder over top. I found some metallic purple paper and rhinestone brads from my collection to go with the theme. The little white tag is polyshrink. I stamped "Let The Good Times Roll" on there, then shrunk it down and tied it one with some gold cord. This card is quite big, 8x4.25!
