Mardi Gras

I've just found Gill's challenges and decided to post a quick entry before it's too late. As the theme is Mardi Gras I decided to use a fan template from Debbi Moore's cd.  That's when I  found out that my printer was telling me the truth when it said it was low on ink!!! So I then chose to use some of the lovely papers in Debbi's magazine to make a fan and mounted it on black mirri. I embossed a corner in silver mirri because it resembles a mask (upside down!) and a silver oval which I decorated with feathers and gems. I was just about to post it and then saw that the challenge was to use purple gold and green! That'll teach me not to read things properly! So I used green mirri and a gold butterfly for highlights and hope this is enough to cover the brief :)
Thanks for looking :

Most of the cards and projects got an airing on the noon show and name checked twice for the ring box and frame - Martyn seemed to like the red bag !! anyway congratulations on winning the cup of chance giveaway. im always intrigued to know what gets sent out - can you put up a post with card when it gets to you as would love to see it. i wonder if it will be one of mine !!! lol
