" Mardi Gras " - Challenge #59

A week of celebration....... Mardi Gras!  This weekly challenge is the closest I have ever come to celebrating this festival..... and it was, indeed, fun to do the Mardi Gras research!  The Diva's challenge goes like this:  "Mardi Gras translates to Fat Tuesday - which traditionally was a day to eat rich/fatty foods - to INDULGE... one last Hurrah before Lent began the next day on Ash Wednesday.  This week's challenge - create a tile or ZIA using the prompt: Mardi Gras."  

I have always been fascinated by "jester" characters in movies.  Why?  Perhaps because they represented humor and brought a sense of reality to even the darkest of medieval plots.  (... and I really hate movies with a dark, morbid storyline.)  Maybe 'reality' is not the politically correct word here, but for me, humor & reality are a match made in heaven.

Thanks, Laura.

Happy tangling.....
