Circus Party

The freebie image from The Alley Way Stamps for August is a perfect fit with the image for the challenge found here:

I really liked the colours in this Be Inspired challenge but was immediately attracted to the fairground carnival image.  I have chosen to work with the circus tent and use those pretty colours with the image:

The background paper was just right for this card - it is one from my stash.  I have die-cut the image using Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle die.  This is one I purchased recently and seemed to have used alot already.  This is the largest one in the set which is a perfect fit for an A6 card - just fits in at the sides!

I used the sentiment inside the flag on the top of the circus tent.  Thought it looked just right there!  The colours are inspired by the image but also by the background paper.

I have also added some pearls to the banner on the tent and also some rhinestones to the die-cut to give the card a bit of bling.
