hello all, 
welcome to my last project for joy clair
today i am showcasing the mardi gras stamp set.
ironically the sentiment i chose for my card is: 
let the good times roll. 
i haven't have a good time for a while now and for the same reasons i won't be able to stay.
  it is so funny that unconsciously i chose this phrase. i sure will have to 
"laissez les bons temps rouler" 
for real. 

these masks are so pretty. i used its digi dies to cut the masks. i then used an embossing pad to add gold embossing powder and glitter.

i used a pearlized cardstock for the card layers. the golden splashes were done with a gold acrylic paint and a cheap watercolor brush.
the black ink i used smeared a bit on the slick surface and it took a while to dry. 
the tiny fleur de lis are also from the same stamp set. the stitched border was done with a fiskars paper punch.

i cut these pennants from a cricut cart and the tiny fleur de lis here are from a g-studio paper punch. i covered them with stickles.
the gold tone cs is from dcwv. 
the other masks were not glued to the pennants and that is why the middle mask is crooked. 
normally, i can't photograph purple well for whatever reason but today i did. lol. i couldn't chance to wait for another day. hehe.

the stamp set is so pretty.
