James at the Carnival

Welcome to the carnival! Well, at least, the carnival on a card. ;D I put together this project as an eclectic conglomeration as if it was a box full of memories filled with trinkets and mementos. I used James at the Carnival from Mo Manning and Candy Cart from Make it Crafty.


Some of the embellishments are items scattered around my desk, such as the tickets, paperclip and bottle cap. Although most of them are new items I found when I knew carnival images were coming out! This particular style is more rustic and antique which was a new style that was fun to work with.


Looks like "James" has already won his prize and settling down for some lunch. And what's a carnival with out a candy cart filled with some Salt Water Taffy? Hmmm, my favorite! I was even lucky enough to find some faux candy in the craft store the other day and had to add it to the card.


Here's a better view of the Candy Cart and I've seen Tilda sitting on it the other day - it was cute. A fun part of using these new Carnival images as it allows me to work on new color combination and this black/gold/red one has been fun.


This was just a little preview of what is to come next week! Grab the badge from the sidebar and mark down in your calendars for next Thursday.... Mo & Zo's Carnival is coming to town!! (That's Mo Manning and Make it Crafty coming together with the perfect combination of characters and scenery that you won't want to miss out on!) :D Check out the announcement...
