Monthly Challenge #5 - Mardi Gras

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

(Let the good times roll!)

Hello hello hello!
Amanda here! Today I present to you a new challenge.. A challenge about the "joie de vivre", the Carnivale, and all things New Orleans. Mardi Gras "Fat Tuesday" is celebrated throughout the world but possibly the largest celebration is held in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. This month's challenge is a celebration of New Orleans - her beauty and her darkness. The challenge is to create something New Orleans or Mardi Gras themed. Think purple + gold + green, or feather masks and bead necklaces, Voodoo, or vampires (as New Orleans is the setting for several vampire novels/shows/movies)

You can use whatever stamps you like but remember to stay in theme. Make it into something lovely, upload it to your blog or a "public" Facebook post. Make sure you include a link back to this post! And then add your link in the InLinkz widget below. The challenge runs until February 1st! Winner will be chosen by random number generator and announced on February 11th =)

Please share, share, share your creations with a link to this challenge blog. The more people participating, the more fun we ALL get to have =)

Plus, wouldn't you like your friends to also have the opportunity to win 3 FREE digis from the Faery Ink Etsy Shop? =)
