Celebrate...

Hey there blogger buddies!
   I'm thinking Spring today!!  I've met my quota of Valentine cards and I'm movin' on even though the ground hog saw his shadow!  Tomorrow is Mardi Gras, which is French for Fat Tuesday as most people know it.  Celebrated in different ways throughout the world, it's a Christian festival day(s) prior to Ash Wednesday which signifies the  beginning of Lent.

Here's my Mardi Gras inspiration using the Tutti Designs Scalloped Stitched Nesting Ovals and Celebrate Word Set...

"Celebrate"

 Colorful beads, masks and costumes of purple, green and gold are common sights during the festivities.  I used these colors as inspiration for my "Celebrate" card.


I die cut and embossed the focal background oval using the Scalloped Stitched Nesting Ovals then matted it with a larger oval cut from the same dies.  The Fleur de Lis is another French symbol often seen throughout Mardi Gras celebrations and I just happened to have an embossing folder with the Fleur de Lis design.


Added a fun mask...



Thank you for stopping by to share my Monday Mardi Gras inspiration for Tutti Designs!
