Good Friday everyone! This week's Raise the Bar Challenge takes its inspiration from Mardi Gras - use purple, green and one other color (I used brown). The DP is from DCWV's Latte matstack which also has a nice textured surface. This was a chance to play with some new SU toys - gotta love Sale-a-bration time and the freebies that are offered! I loved layering this Triple Treat Flower and jazzed it up (Mardi Gras...jazz...you get it - lol!) with some rhinestones. The Sizzix Embosslits Sweetest Stem die was also a new toy - instant texture and cutting in one swoop! The Pear Pizzazz pleated ribbon matched the DP perfectly and I love, love, love this ribbon! The sentiment, stamped in Elegant Eggplant, is from Flourishes' new Calla Lilies set. Thanks for stopping by...hope to see you join us in this fun challenge! Be sure and check out what the other bartenders have created for your inspiration...
