Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #154

Pin It
Hello Divas!!

Time for a new challenge and a new post from us at the Die Cuttin' Divas Design Team!!


 Challenge #154
 Mardi Gras.
Make a Mardi Gras themed project or Mardi Gras Inspired Project
 (music, beads, masks, bright colors, parade, etc)

I have always wanted to go to Mardi Gras in Louisiana.
It's one of my things to do on my bucket list!
  
 I have never really celebrated Mardi Gras and really don't know much about the holiday except for it is celebrated before Lent. And I think they have something called Fat Tuesday where they eat a ton of yummy stuff before they fast on Ash Wednesday. I hope I am close in my thinking and if not please feel free to enlighten me in the comments below. I'd love to learn more!!
 
 I did a search for SVG files on google and found this mask at paperyoga.com. I was able to trace it and cut it out with my Cameo using my SCAL program.

Other items used:
Glitter Cardstock
AC Cardtstock
Wooden Dowel
LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon
Skittles by ABusyBee Aka DoubleClick
