Oh my gosh was this card ever fun!! I think trying to find the challenge photo was more of the challenge considering um, how do you get more beads at Mardi Gras?? Uh, yeah…it was rough finding a G rated photo that could be an inspiration jumping board!! LOL
The challenge is to build a card using a photo given and if you wanted to challenge yourself more then add 3 embellishments from a list. If you wanted to give yourself more of a challenge then use at least 6 embellishments from the list.
Now considering the photo I found, in all honesty I picked the photo before I found out that this corset stamp I ordered from B Line had arrived. (That’s the HONEST truth Peg!! Really!!)
And well then I didn’t need an excuse to get this stamp all inky!!!
I did go through several backgrounds, pattern paper, embellishments, etc. I don’t know how many cards I’ve ripped up but you know what?? I had a blast making this card!
Here’s a teaser of my take on the Mardi Gras inspiration card:
