Flourishes, lc Celebration Circus

Hello friends!  I have a fun card to share with you today using one of the original Flourishes, lc. stamp sets designed exclusively for Jan Marie Caruso - the Big Top.  Everybody loves the Circus - right!?

I have stamped the bear using Imagine Memento Ink in Espresso Truffle onto kraft card stock.  The layers have been cut using Spellbinders A-2 Matting Basics B Card Creator Etched Dies and popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The blue patterned layer has been embossed using Em-bossing Fold'ers Ripple 4.25 x 5.5 in Single Sided.

The strip of patterned paper is from Stampin' Up and I believe it is retired - but so perfect for this card and the sentiment is from the Die D-Lites Celebrate Etched Dies

The pennants have been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Rhubarb Stalk and Teal Zeal.
