Let's Celebrate Mardi Gras

Monday Greetings!

We have an "Anything Goes - Celebrations" challenge this week (Ground Hog Day, Mardi Gras, President's Day) at The Kraft Journal. With Mardi Gras tomorrow, I was inspired to create a project for the occasion. Hope you enjoy and will be inspired to enjoy us this week!
I started by creating a card base from Blackboard Stock Paper. I topped it with a postage stamp die-cut to frame the mask I cut using a file I obtained at the Silhouette Store.  I added a sentiment from My Creative time Let's Celebrate stamp set below in black ink. At the top of the card, I wrapped a length beautiful lavender Pastel Hemp Cord and tied in a bow at the right side of the card.  Sequins were randomly placed to finish my card.
I wanted a complimenting treat bag, and I used the Small Kraft Coffee Bag with window which I filled with lots of Mardi Gras goodies. I decided to alternate my mask colors for fun!
Please be sure to head over to The Kraft Journal blog to see the projects created by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your Anything Goes - Celebrations creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be showcased in the "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher to The Kraft Outlet store.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a GREAT start to your week!
