A little bit of Mardi Gras

I love New Orleans, and this new Fleur de Lis stamp from DRS Designs reminds me of New Orleans and Mardi Gras.  We went to New Orleans right after Mardi Gras this year and had the most fun.  We avoided the crowds and took cooking classes and ate at some of our favorite restaurants.  Eating is always my favorite part of any vacation. 
All the shops in New Orleans were full of Fleur de Lis and Mardi Gras colors so I decided to use them both on this birthday card.  Seems to capture the festive atmosphere we should all have on our birthday. 

I used the Small 1 line Happy Birthday stamp and popped it up over my splatters (made by filling my paint brush with water colors and then flicking it against my finger.  Added some glitter dots to make it feel even more festive.

Many hugz!
