Fun card for The Stamping Boutique "Blog Hop of Sorts"

This past weekend, The Stamping Boutique tried something new - instead of a Blog Hop where you hop along to each Design Team's site to take a gander at their work, we had all the DT members post a picture (anonymously) using something from The Stamping Boutique's Circus Line.  Everyone got to vote on their preferred card. 

Now that the "Hop" is over, I can post this card and tell you it's mine, all mine, lol ...

I used 2 images, the Elephant and the Lion in the Circus Train cars.  Both were colored with Copics and highlighted with white gel pen.  I added some Stickles to the stars on the wheels and the circles on the elephant's car as well as to the sparkles dusted across the images.  The sentiment is computer generated.  For a gal who's not super-keen on orange (um, me?), I thought it went perfect with this circus theme, and I'm proud of what I created.  Finishing touches include the punched corners, 3-colored brads in the corners, embossed butterflies from SU's embosslits that I dotted with Stickles, and a strip of Olive grosgrain ribbon.

If you get a chance, head on over to The Stamping Boutique's Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the designers came up with - AND to see who won!

Now that the winner's been chosen (you'll have to go check it out) - Yay, Heide, I voted for your card! ...
and I can post my photo, I'm also submitting this for the challenge over at Sandy's Space ... Challenge #3 - Be inspired by the jungle themed photo (which is cute in and of itself!) ... Check it out!

Thanks for another fly-by - Always look forward to your comments.
