Happy Mardi Gras card / H2H challenge

This week's H2H challenge was to use gypsy, creme brulee & black.

They reminded me of New Orleans and Mardi Gras (which is this coming Tuesday), so I added a little green and came up with this Mardi Gras Card:

I'm not sure exactly what happened with the upload of this picture, but the card is actually square.  Also, the gypsy cs looks blue in the photo, but it really is gypsy.  The background creme brulee cs is tone-on-tone stamped with small fleur-de-lis images CTMH's Legendary Moments stamp set.  The large fleur-de-lis on the bottom left is also from this set.  The fence and moon & star (representing the crescent city) are all from CTMH's Fright Night stamp set.  (I'm always proud of myself when I find an alternative use for a holiday set--this one was a Halloween stamp set.)  The umbrella is from the Springtime stamp set, and I paperpieced the top and added bling, some old sassy strands, and one of the punched out fleur-de-lis from the background edge punches (by EK Success).  The small green B&T paper strip at the bottom is from the Lucky paper pack.  Here's a look at the inside of the card:  I used CTMH's small Friendship alphabet and Be Yourself stamp sets.

  TFL! and Laissez les bon temp rouler!
