♪♫ It's Carnival Time♫♪

Louisiana carnival season has begun! January 6 is called Epiphany or Twelfth Night (since it's twelve days after Christmas) or Kings Day (hence the King Cake tie-in?). It marks the moment in the Bible that the three kings arrived in Bethlehem to behold the baby Jesus. Traditionally, Epiphany is considered the last day of the Christmas holidays. You can now say "Happy Mardi Gras!", wear purple, green and gold, buy and eat king cake and take down your Christmas decorations! I plan on doing it tomorrow...ugh!

In the meantime, I made a fun card using the Stamptangle Celestial Montage stamp. The design reminded me of some of my Mardi Gras decorations!
Image stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with silver embossing powder. The image was painted with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water. Club Scrap cardstock and embellished with gems from my stash.

  1. Beautiful! I love the fun image and sparkle! I had planned to take down our tree last night on 12th night, but I was too tired!

  2. Oh what a fun and beautiful card! Love it! Our decorations have been down since Dec. 28th, BUT we still have half a tree and a box of decorations left in the den to take up to the attic!
