Good morning to all my friends and followers today over at Cuttlebug Challenge we the Sweet Treats team have some amazing projects for you viewing pleasure using our Provo Craft Cricut and Cuttlebug our assignments this week was to create project for Mardi Gras so let's get started with the party.

To get my party started I made a menu with a placard and  party cracker of course  beads and feathers where added to go along with the Mardi Gras theme.

 Here is aclose up of the menu now I will tell you how I made it 
1. I took 3 sheets of white card stock  brayered white shimmering ink mixed with reinkers to get my colors
2.  My menu was pieced together with triangles I cut from Cricut cartridge George's Basic Shapes ran them through the Cuttlebug using the Fleur de Lis folder and adhered them using my xyron.
3. Dyed the feathers using shimmers to match layout stapled to project cut out butterfly to resemble a mask from Indie art as well as the crown.
4. Cut out the words from Stone Script adhered to vellum hand wrote the menu

this is my placard basically did the same thing with this using the same cartridges and cuts I did add jewels to the crown and stitched beads to the side (have to have beads)
on the party cracker I just rolled up a piece of card stock  wrapped it in purple tissue  tied the ends with green ribbon than added the crowns from the Indie Art Cartridge.
