Here is what Kathi says about this challenge:
"The colors of Mardi Gras are purple, green and gold... use them or the symbols of Mardi Gras - Fluer de lys, masks, costumes or music!! Let the good times roll"
I made a background with water and purple&seagreen brusho.
Used antique gold paint for the accents.
Glued a mardi gras coin on the card to finish it.
