{Paper Smooches} Circus Birthday + Video!

Today is the last day to comment
 on my giveaway post. Details HERE.

I made this birthday card for our neighbour's three-year-old daughter to coordinate with the gift we got her, which was LEGO DUPLO's My First Circus. I started with the Enjoy the Show stamp set and coordinating Circus Icons dies.

I used patterned papers from Fancy Pants' Everyday Circus 6x6 paper pad to create all three layers of the tent. The tent opening and flaps were created with the largest of the Hexalongs dies.

I combined both the Balloons and Big Balloons dies to create the three balloons. I used the confetti swirl as a number three! The sentiment banners were created using the Digits stamp set and Flag Tags dies to notch the ends.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Emily I love it, as I'm sure that little 3-year-old will =] Don't you think the left-over from the tent flaps would make a very cute clown-like tie? - back to work!!

Another amazing card, Em! Love the paper choices -- and I think you made the right decision with the starry one for the interior of the tent, myself. ;) As we both know, 3 year olds love to pull popped-up elements off cards, so lots of foam tape was very wise. :D
