I made this card for this week's Teapot Tuesday Challenge: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=480541
This week are heading to New Orleans to the house of Marti McGraw. She is trying to cash in on the confusion about her name and stage her own Mardi Gras celebration! Unfortunately, there are no party supplies left in town due to the real Mardi Gras! So it's the teapartiers to the rescue! We're bringing purple, green, and gold color to Martie's place along with doubloons, beads, masks, feathers, dragon/snake like parade suits, wacky/goofy party costumes, confetti, balloons, wigs and sparkly embellishments. You get the picture!
I brought a dragon costume and a whole lot of gold bling. Can't wait to get some beads! Hope someone brought enough for all of us!

Oh wow - I thought that was the BG stamp, didn't realise it was part of the paper design. Must go and check mine out, LOL. We're certainly in the party mood with this beautiful card, all that glitz and glamour.

Now this is awesome! What a perfect image for our challenge! It reminds me so much of the dragon costumes in the parade! You did a really good job of naming all that we have to bring! I am impressed! Both with your card and your detailed commentary! Carla, I know where a big stash of beads are....follow me, just pretend we are headed for some cake and that duck into that little room right there....yah, that one! Giggle!!
