Guest Bar Tender


My card was selected in the top 3 for the last challenge over at Raise the Bar! Joni invites the top three to be a Guest Bar Tender for the next challenge. I was very excited to play along. The challenge for this week is the colors of Mardi Gras (purple, green and gold). 

I decided to go all out Mardi Gras for this card with the theme as well as the color palette. I used this fun Masquerade 2 digi from Sassy Studio Designs and a freebie patterned paper from Paulette at Create with TLC

My sketch comes from Sweet Sketch Wednesday #142, another great sketch!


Thanks so much to Joni and the Raise the Bar DT for having me as a guest this week!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend.

Ink: printer
Paper: pattenred paper from Create with TLC, PTI ssw, Royal Velvet, New Leaf
Extras: copics, sakura glitter pen, rhinestones, MFT die, PTI felt and ribbon, dimensionals, cuttlebug embossing folder, nesties, pearl pen, metal dots
