Blogger's Challenge Week 11 - This one was hard!


This one was sooo tough. The challenge was to
use the Circus Train card from page 92 of the Stampin' Up! catalog as inspiration. I struggled with this one! I did not find the layout appealing initially -- very plain backgrounds just don't do it for me! After an hour of struggle, I finally was inspired. I have to admit, this started out simpler -- but I just kept going and going... It has ALOT of elements, but I actually like it!

Make sure to check out the other Blogger's Challenge cards from the ladies in the group --
you will be amazed at the absolute variety and creative thinking that was put into this.

Funny how this layout was so unappealing to so many of us. Anyway you did a fine job with it. I love the use of the border stamp to create the pierced look. Also love all the pretty embossing. Ida
