W2CB #38: Celebrations

Bobbi here with our February/March Words 2 Craft By Challenge.

It has been said that a Scotchman has not seen the world until he has seen Edinburgh; 
and I think that I may say that an American has not seen the United States 
until he has seen Mardi-Gras in New Orleans. Mark Twain  

If you have ever gone to New Orleans during Mardi Gras season, you would understand. With wall to wall people, colorful costumes, beads and other items thrown from the Crewe floats, it is quite the spectacle. I actually caught a "Mardi Bra".  The parades early in the season are general celebrations, while the parades and balls held during the last few days are more traditional.  

Let's see what our I-Team has come up with for inspiration:

Penny chose to use the traditional green, purple and gold Mardi Gras colors:

 Marty has a fun nod to the indulgent side of Mardi Gras:

Annie used traditional Mardi Gras colors for a cheery birthday celebration:

Sybrina took a more subtle approach with her birthday card:

I went with a nod to Mardi Gras "fuel":

Up for grabs is a My Favorite Things stamp set to help you celebrate even more occasions!

Our challenge runs February 8 - March 1.  Share your Celebrations HERE!!!
