We stayed here in January. The hotel is beautiful and located on the courner of Bourbon Street and Toulese at the site of the old opera house. I'm not sure where I picked up the mardi gras beads paper, but I used black, white daisy, and pansy purple CTMH cardstock. The fleur de lis edge is a punch from EK Success, and I used the punchouts randomly on the pansy purple cardstock. The letters are stickers.
