Roll up, roll up!

Hello all :)
Back with another card but before I do anything else, I would just like to say a big thank you to Mayzy of  Mayzy Art for the fantastic prize of 5 of her fabulous digis that I was lucky enough to win on her very first challenge!  My Whole latte love card was picked as the winner - so quick happy dance and then it was over to her etsy shop to pick out some goodies :)

With the second Mayzy Art challenge in mind, which is 'At the Circus', I picked out some images I could use for that.  I wanted to do a circus poster type card and after seeing the great inspiration from that blog's DT, I came up with this -


I kept the colours to just red, yellow and pale blue as I felt these were bright enough to be circus-like and the background is from my huge roll of tickets that I picked up a while ago, out junking on the back roads of Pennsylvania (our latest obsession!)



I would like to put this in for the following challenges as well -



Before you leave, check out the new blinkie at the top right of my blog - we're having a huge party over at The Outlawz so make sure you're a member and you can join in the fun with lots of chances to win some fantastic prizes!!!
See you soon :)
