Life is a Carnival

Hello everyone!

Today's card is for Freshly Made Sketches.  Jennifer Timko provided us with the sketch and hopes that we use the very many scraps we just can't seem to part with...I know she is speaking directly to me!!!

Jen, thanks for the sketch and the suggestion!

The pattern papers I used are from K&Company. I have had them for some time and didn't know how to use them. Until know....
The papers are so vibrant and bold I wanted to use a fun stamp. So I chose the stamp set from The Craft's Meow.  Cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  All dies are from Spellbinders. Copic markers and ink from Color Box were used.

Thanks for stopping by!

So keep those old dryer sheets!!!!  It is so lovely!!

So here are my cards...

For this card above, I used Flourish stamps. Spellbinders labels dies. Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Papertrey Ink cardstock. Copic markers. Scattered straw distress ink, Hero Arts black ink. Ribbon and pearls from Michaels. Ultra fine glitter.
For this second card all the products are the same except the floral image is a stamp from Heartfelt Creations.
