Here's the invitation! Are you ready to party? Shirley's 2 Girls has three new Mardi Gras images! They are: "Zola Does Mardi Gras", "Bourbon Street:, and "Mask". Zola is featured on the invitation. She certainly looks like she's having fun! I sparkled things up with glitter CS, rhinestones, and Stickles.
Now you know I couldn't stop with just a card! LOL! Once I have a theme, my mind just seems to spin with ideas! Pictured above is my "Tablescape".
I modeled my mask after the "Mask" digi image. I confiscated some feathers from one of my boas and glued them to the mask. I added punched stars and rhinestones to match the invitation.
I purchased this glass at the Dollar Tree, and it only cost, guess what?...a dollar! I used the Zola image to make a glass decal using Grafix Rub-On paper purchased at Hobby Lobby. You could make one for each guest to take home, or use one for a centerpiece like I did. The glass is actually clear, but I filled it with white glitter for photographic purposes.
I made coasters which would make great take home favors for guests. I found some coasters at Michael's in the dollar bin. Gotta love a bargain! I used all three of the Mardi Gras images. I colored, cut, and attached the images to the coasters with Mod Podge and distressed ink around the edges. Next I applied five protective layers of Mod Podge, letting each coat dry in between layers.

Throw some doubloons on the table and some beaded necklaces, and you're ready for a party! But don't stop here! The party continues at these DT members' blogs: Georgia, Jane, and Lisa! Be sure to stop by the S2G Store and pick up your Mardi Gras images. While you're there, check out the new Indulgence images, too!
