{Life Is A Balancing Act}

cpc

    I was inspired by a few different things today to create this card. Let me start with the sentiment..."Life is a balancing act."This is SO true, and in the paper crafting world it can be very easy to get wrapped up in deadlines, challenges, you get the picture. I was inspired by this post by the uber talented Kelley Eubanks. She talks about balance and the importance of maintaining it. I loved it and can relate on a much lower level of course. lol  Anyways...my second source of inspiration is the sketch challenge from this weeks Card Patterns Weekly Sketch. It has been such a long time since I played along with this one. Here is the sketch:


    I thought I would use a Clear and Simple stamp set that I had not inked up yet, "Circus Fun". This set is alot of fun to use because you get to build your own circus! I used Pretty In Pink DSP from Stampin Up, and the outline circle background was created using PTI's Polka Dot Basics background set. I used a Spellbinders die to create my eyelet circle. I also used the SU canvas background stamp to give my kraft card base a little more dimension.  I hope you like my card and as always thank you for visiting my blog! Come back tomorrow for a chance to win a HUGE blog candy prize package I am putting together. Have a great day!
