A Tribute to New Orleans and Mardi Gras

Here's a new card I created without using any stamps this time. Instead, I used a really classy 3D sticker by Jolee. Then some fantastic designer papers mixed with Spellbinder Nestabilities and Sizzix die~cuts for added flair and dimension. I really had fun with the stitching in the background. I simply followed the lines of the diamond shapes. It made for a lot of thread securing on the back of the card, but I think the effect with the green thread was worth it.
