Roll up, roll up ....

I enjoyed playing with the lovely bright Big Top circus papers from SU, so I decided to use them again for Owen.

The name doesn't stand out so well in the photo.  I had originally intended putting it at the top of the card but decided the greeting looked better there, and as I had already cut the letters and covered them in gloss, I wasn't about to redo them. 

Got a bit carried away with the glitter in an attempt to simulate sawdust!! lol 
Although you can't see it, the Lion and seal are popping up from the page.
Lots of fun making kids cards, but I have to keep reminding myself that they are just that - kids cards! and not spend so much time on them.

Popping Up

That would be me popping up with a Pop Up card. 
A friend mentioned there was a challenge this week at Just Add Ink to make a pop-up card and since I had just made one for my Grandson I thought "why not give it a go".  As I had already given the card, my Daughter has taken the photos for me, which was probably a good thing given my lack of skills in that department.

The elephant and the clown are the pop up bits and the elephant is looking a little off balance as the card has been opened and shut quite a lot.
Those beautiful papers are SU Big Top Birthday and the matching stamp set  is Under the Big Top.
Now lets see if I can add this to the challenge.

Edited to add:  I was lucky enough to get an honourable mention for this card.
