A Bigtop Birthday

I'm loving the new circus trend going on in card world right now. They are so fun and whimsical. I had to be a part of it.

I also needed to replenish my stash (or should I say stache) of birthday cards. Several members of my DH's family have birthdays in July and August. Needless to say, you'll be seeing a lot of birthday cards on blog until I catch up!!

I made this card with items I had purchased separately. It didn't occur to me how well they fit together until I started digging through my supplies. It was a stroke of serendipity. I love it when that happens!!

And then I had another stroke of serendipity! (Don't you love that word?) I checked out the Cards Magazine Create blog and discovered the recent challenge is to create birthday cards. Bonus!!

Here is my card:


Paper - Stampin' Up!
Stamps - My Cute Stamps, Stampin' Up
Ink - Memento
Die Cut - Cuttlebug
Embellies - baker's twine, grossgrain ribbon
