Circus Love

Hi everyone! I found these scalloped cards I cut out from the Sizzix Scallop Card diecut several years ago along with a 4 1/2"x6 1/2" pad of The Great Circus Company from Paper Studio. The set of Graphic 45 Cling Le Cirque 3 rubber stamps I had purchased at a great price at Tuesday Morning (2.99). Which of course I couldn't pass up. ;-) I couldn't decide on if I wanted to do Valentine's Day theme cards or just wanted to keep them generic and finally wound up doing generic theme. So far this is what I came up with...I have a couple of more to do. :-)

I stamped and used pastel chalks to color the images and then set the chalk with hairspray. Also I printed the sentiments from the computer and I inked all the edges with brown chalk ink.

I added sequins for a little bit of fun bling to the cards. Plus it is flat and should mail easily. 
If you have any questions about these cards please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
