Mardi Gras Time

Let the Party Begin...........My ATC is serving double duty today, it's made for the Gingersnap Mardi Gras challenge, (yahoo members group), and for the Fun with ATC's Challenge 2, that my new friend Susi invited me to. Check out the Blog Candy they are givin' away too! The stamps are from Flourishes, and how timely is this image! I embossed the image with purple, and grunged up the light brown cs with brown and gold ink. The umbrellas are paper pieced, using a tech from the TJNL. I hope the gals at Fun with ATC's don't mind that I added a little green to their brown and purple color challenge. Thanks for stoppin, by....hugz...and as a little P.S., where I come from, the day before Ash Wednesday is Punche' Day (I have no idea how it's spelled), yummy, fresh baked jelly bismarks; or probably better known as Fat Tuesday! lol.........
