Big Top Birthday

Update:  My card was a Top 5 Pick in QKR Stampede Challenge #57--Flying High with Balloons.

 In September I have to make birthday cards for four of my grandchildren.  I went to a circus with one of my grandsons, so I thought a "big top" card would be perfect for his birthday!  I added some balloons and sparkly "stars" as embellishments.

I entered this card in the following challenges:
                          Stampotique Designers Challenge SDC117--Birthday Theme
                          Whimsy Stamps  Challenge #63--Masculine
                          Card Crafters Circle Challenge #93--Toys Children's Cards
                          Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe #142--Cute Kids
                          QKR Stampede Challenge #57--Balloons
                          Eclectic Ellapu For a Boy
                          The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog Challenge #53--A Cute One for the Boys
