Life Is A Carnival Card and Mother's Day Special Giveaway

2:15:00 PM Luanne 19 Comments

Welcome to the Month of March. This is a very special month for me as on the 4th day I had my sweet son and 17th is my birthday. I made a card for this Special Giveaway Celebration for Mother's Day together with my sister Venus at We Heart Papercrafts.

 I am using the stamp from The Crafts Meow - Life Is A Carnival and the collection from Webster's Pages - Sunday Picnic. Both of these which I won from a challenge and giveaway. I am also following the March sketch from TCM.

Here is my card using the 6x6 papers from Webster's Pages. The paper is actually the front and back cover of the 6x6 pad but it's beautiful so I used it for this card. I stamped the carousel image to a white cardstock and distressed the edges using TH Tea Dye ink. I stamped it to a different cardstock and paper pieced the tent. I then mounted it on a shimmery cardstock and cut the edges using scallop scissor, added pearls and mounted on the card with foam tapes. I also used the fabric bicycle ribbon and ruffles trim also from WP. Clear buttons from my collection and one of the medallion sparklers from WP.

Here is a side view of the card. Also using the 6x6 back paper of the collection.

I stamped a sentiment inside from Tech Tues - Love Mom stamp set.
