Let's join the circus...

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

Have you ever wanted to run away with the circus? The ladies of the S.W.A.T. Challenge Blog sure have... At least you would think so with our newest challenge. You have one more day to play along with us. Upload your circus themed card by April 4th and you might win this great prize package from Graphic 45!

And here's the circus themed card I created for the post...

I originally was going to use an elephant or a lion, but then I remembered this journal card in by SMASH Book supplies. The card, from K&Company, was a piece that I never found a spot for in my scrapbooking. Because the circus is full of fun characters and wild ideas, I thought he would be just perfect. I paired him with some fun papers in bright colors, including this alphabet paper by BasicGrey. When I think of the circus, I can't help but imagine the posters. I have a complete love affair for typography and vintage circus posters is where it's at! 

I created a few flags for my sentiment; however, I didn't have just the right stamp to use. That's when I came across this sticker in my Snap letters. The color matches perfectly with the Mermaid Chevron paper from A Muse Studio. A little baker's twine and a vintage button complete the card! 

Don't forget to check out the S.W.A.T. blog for even more circus inspired cards!

  1. Thank you for your lovely comment, Nicole. Very much appreciated.
    Love the card you made. Especially the focal point ... one piece of art I don't see every day that's for sure.
