Birthday Circus Train

This past weekend we went to a carnival birthday party. To keep with the theme, I created a circus train birthday card. That's kinda the same, right?

The background was sponged, using a scallop circle punch as a mask for the clouds. I paper pieced the cupcake and used glitter for icing and flame.

Stamps: Choo Choo, Animal Stories, Wagon Full of Fun, Sincere Salutations, Right on Track wheel; Paper: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, So Saffron; Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Ruby Red, Going Gray, Chocolate Chip marker; Accessories: Sponges, Scallop Circle punch, 2-Way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Fine Cosmo glitter, Fire Circle rhinestone brads, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!
