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!
