Here's my card with Ta-Dah with Words on the Side (Kate Crane), Phineas (Amy Wilson Wellenstein), and Priscilla (Amy Wilson Wellenstein).
Ta-Dah with Words on the Side, Phineas, and Priscilla were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts), colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, the edged with a Black Pitt Artist pen (Faber Castell). They were set aside to cavort while I created a background for them.
Two strips of musical notation patterned paper scraps from the Avignon 6x6 pad (7 Gypsies) were sponged with Golden Glitz Delicata ink (Imagine Crafts), then layered atop a sheet of fleur de lys patterned paper from the same pad. 3mm washi tape (Little B) was used to cover the seams and add additional interest.
Gold, green, and purple glitter paper (American Crafts) was die-cut with one of the dies in the Decorative Borders set (All Occasions) to become Mardi Gras beads. Green glitter paper was die-cut with the clock hands from Retro Mod Clocks die set (Spellbinders) and Celebrate (Die-versions). A purple glitter flower (QuicKutz) was die-cut as well.
Ta-Dah with Words on the Side, Phineas, and Priscilla were adhered to the background and the glitter bead necklaces were draped on their hands. The clock hands were positioned in the upper left corner and the flower die-cut was placed over them. The sentiment was added to the lower right. The entire card front was edged with Golden Glitz Delicata ink then adhered to a card.
