It's time for another 7 Kids College Fund Challenge.
Did you know that Mardi Gras falls on March 8 this year. To help celebrate Mardi Gras, we are using Mardi Gras Colors. I did some research and found some fun facts about Mardi Gras...
Mardi Gras occurs the day before Lent begins.
Mardi Gras is a French term, translated Fat Tuesday and was called this because it was the last day to "pig out" before Lent.
Mardi Gras is the last day of the Carnival Season before Ash Wednesday.
Mardi Gras has been celebrated since the middle ages.
Mardi Gras Colors have the following assigned meanings...
Purple - Justice
Green - Faith
Gold - Power
Here is my Mardi Gras card...
You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund...
Stamps: Tilda with Sunflower
Accessories: Flowers, Dew Drops, Spellbinders Scalloped Circles, Spellbinders Lattice Pendant, Pearls, Stickles,
I colored Tilda with Copics, using the current technique challenge from Make It Colourful, "Light Source Top Left.:" I really wanted to go with the Mardi Gras theme, so I used one of the dies from the Lattice Pendant set to fashion a mask. I used feathers and Stickles to decorate the mask, and a tooth pick for the handle. I added some pearls because you know Mardi Gras is all about the beads.
I used the Carte Postale set from SU! for the fleur de lis and the sentiment.
I included a picture from the side of the image that really shows off the Stickles.
I used the sketch from Just Magnolia...
Thanks for stopping by today.
