A Mardi Gras Inspired Background

Today, I am sharing another scrapbook page.  This time, it is from my latest trip to Disney World and features the Port Orleans French Quarter Resort Hotel--where it is Mardi Gras all the time!  Of course, Mardi Gras paper is sometimes hard to find here in Michigan.  What did I do?  Well, I used some subtly printed paper from the DCWV Timeless Treasures Pack as a base to create my own.  I stenciled with my Dreamweaver Stencils, Stamped with Hero Arts and Stampabilities, and even used my Silhouette auto trace and cut out the title, but the thing that brought it all together was my Globecraft Piccolo Embossing Powders and Embossing Adhesive.  Take a look:
And the facing page is here:
The gold is actually the same, but they were photographed under two different lighting situations.  To check out how I did any of the parts, go HERE for the tutorial.  Thanks for looking!
