Happy Monday! Today I have a fun card to share with you that I made as part of the new challenge over at The Kraft Journal! This week's theme is "carnivals, parades, or parties" and I made this fun carnival card! I am also playing along with this week's Lawnscaping challenge which is to use the distressing technique.

I started off with a kraft card base and added coordinating patterned papers from the "Le Cirque" line from Graphic 45, cutting the striped paper to resemble a circus tent. I stamped and colored a ferris wheel image and inked up the edges of all papers for a vintage look. and finished the card with some baker's twine, a glitter star and some great Tim Holtz tickets!

I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week - it is such a fun theme and we're running out of time to celebrate the pastimes of summer! Link up by Sunday for a chance to win some great prizes!

Supplies: Stamps - Admit One (Lawn Fawn), DP - Le Cirque Collection (G45), Cardstock - Kraft (TKO), Select Cream (PTI), Baker's Twine (TKO), Tim Holtz Tickets (TKO), Glitter Stars (Memriemare), Copic Markers, Ink - Basic Black (SU!), Tea Dye Duo (PTI), Edge Punch (EK Success)

  6. I was at the fair this weekend and rode the ferris wheel. It's my favorite because it overlooks the ocean and wow! What a view! This card reminds me of how much fun we had. You did an amazing job with this challenge. I love the carnival striped paper with those pretty stars at the top!
