Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Carnival Craze



Can you believe that this is already the third Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge?
Are you ready to go to the carnival?





 Lawn Fawn is our fabulous sponsor this challenge and they have generously provided all of the Curtain Call Crew with a stamp set that coordinates with our challenge!





The crew got to chose from these two sets...Blue Skies and Admit One...



...and that's not all!  Lawn Fawn is offering the LEAD of the Carnival Craze challenge a choice of any stamp set from their shop!

Since 1879 the city of Toronto hosts the Canadian National Exhibition running the last three week's of August.  This year it opens on August 16th. The opening of the 'CNE' is bittersweet, excitement for the midway and carnival games but also a reminder that summer is almost over.




I chose the Admit One stamp set for my card. Armed with some Lawn Fawn Daphne's Closet patterned paper and my Copic markers this is the card I came up with.

We really hope that you come and join us for this challenge at the Curtain Call.  We had so many amazing entries and fabulous projects for our Watermelon Wonder challenge, we can't wait to see what you do this time!
