Raise The Bar

Hey everybody,

Yayyy, it's Friday.  I hope you all have had a super week, and are ready for the weekend.

 I'm tickled pink to have been one of the top 6 at Raise The Bar, and asked to be a guest designer for this week's challenge.  You could have a change to win too. The challenge this week is  "Carnival/Circus Day".  So come on by, and check out all the fabulous inspiration.

Here's my take on the challenge
The stamp is called "Carousel", and is one of my favorite stamps from the Digi Doodle Shop days.  I colored it with promarkers, and then used my handy dandy exacto knife to cut it out, and dimensionals for that 3-D effect. 
Other mediums used:
Embellishments: white flowers from Walmart, glitter Bow from the Dollar Tree.
Trim: ric rac from Michaels, and I used ribbon from my stash to wrap around it.
Paper: purple from Colorbok, cream was part of a gift, and I used a Martha Stewart border punch.
Sentiment: created in Paint Shop Pro
Thanks for taking the time out of your day, and stopping by.

ps. be sure to check out my "free" page, you might find this stamp there one day.

Very pretty card. I love the design and your coloring. I have a few horse stamps and have not got the courage to stamp and color them. Maybe when I get better, lol. You do wonderful jobs on your cards.
