Birthday Carousel


Good evening, all!  Popping in with a card for two challenges - Curtain Call and the Colour Throwdown.  I did some solid colour paper piecing for this one cursing myself all the way for choosing such fiddly images! LOL!  I like the final result though so it's worth a few naughty words. Thankfully Atticus is the only one to hear them...  Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla) Stampin' Up, (Lilac)
Stamps:  (Carousel from Admit One, (Sentiment from Grand Greetings) Lawn  Fawn, (Tickets from Admit One) Sweet Stamp Shop
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Nesties Blossom 2) Spellbinders
Gems:  Recollections

Hee, I've done that, too -- decided to paper-piece then cursed myself for picking fiddly images. This is one incredibly sweet card, though, Jen.

Don'tcha hate that? The self-abuse we ladle out at times like that...lol. Been there done that. Luckily Atti isn't likely to repeat any of your bad word choices ;) The final effect is so awesome though - and I love that ticket strip!!
