Flourishes,lc Celebrate

Hello friends - I could not resist this little Bear on a Bicycle from the Flourishes,lc. The Big Top stamp set  designed exclusively for Jan Marie Caruso by Lauren Pope.

I have stamped the bear using Imagine Memento Ink in Espresso Truffleonto 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 Front 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 sentiment is from the Die D-Lites Celebrate Etched Dies.  The pennants have been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Teal Zeal. The background has been stenciled using a homemade stencil and  Imagine Memento Luxe Ink in Rose Bud.  Want2Scrap  Yellow Enamel Dots have been randomly added to the card front, along with a ticket - to get into the Circus of course!
