There is a background story to this creation. I have an Instagram account @martyzstamps, and I wanted to share an image I colored with the artist that (I thought) created a digi-stamp I had purchased several months ago. Well, it wasn’t her image; and boy, did I really feel embarrassed. So, I went back to Etsy and did a search for JuliaSpiri. Of course, I found several digi-stamps to use on future projects.  I’m sure you know where I’m going with this . . . . Yep, JuliaSpiri Etsy store had just the digi-stamp image I needed to complete this challenge.

As luck would have it, Paper Craft Crew Challenge #279 this week is a Mardi Gras themed card and this girl from JuliaSpiri  Romantic Fantasy – The Venice Collection – The Mask of Peacock is perfect for this challenge.

Since Mardi Gras is all about the party with glitz and glamour, I created a shaker card to get the party started . . . shake, shake, shake . . . shake your . . . well, whatever you got shake it!  Let me just stop this party to say check out the card below. The featured color scheme are those traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and yellow, which make her pop right off the card. The  Fun Stampers Journey Color Burst Pencils were the perfect coloring tool to create nice blended shading on the digi-stamp image.  She is just too elegantly adorable! So much fun!

Let me know in the comments if you have ever been to a Mardi Gras celebration and whether you liked it or not.
