Sherbet Circus

Happy Sunday! I'm writing this on Friday, so I'm hoping that as you read this we're out enjoying some park and picnic time if the weather permits. Jackson is learning new things so fast right now, it's so fun to see what new things he'll try at the playground from week to week.

I made some time this week to play along with the Simon Says Carnival challenge, and the carnival inspiration at Curtain Call. I knew Lisa's Circus Spectacular set would be perfect.

The WSC138 sketch worked well for what I had in mind (I did elongate the middle panel a smidge) I also used the matching Ticket Strip and Circus Spectacular dies. The papers are mostly MME scraps I pulled out of my scrap basket. The colours came directly from the pretty inspiration photo, I love the sherbet colours:

I kept the inside of my card super simple...

I stamped a couple of tickets, doing some quick masking. Thanks for stopping by - I hope you're having a great weekend!
