Woohoo its Friday, the weekend is here :) 

Today is my post for Chocolate, Coffee and Cards and our sponsor this fortnight is: Digital Delights
I picked this fun little image 'Roley the ringmaster'

The theme for this challenge is 'Lets go to the Circus' - how fun :)
 To join us for this challenge and to find all the details please visit us HERE.

I masked and stamped two animals from a Kanban set of stamps I have (the two most suited for a circus and looking the right way!) coloured them and then popped my coloured Roley over the centre of them (I opted to colour them in a more cartoony way than my normal style).

They were matted onto a colourful stripy background, which was then mounted onto green cardstock, embossed with my dotty Sizzix folder.

The two tags were scraps in my stash pot and although difficult to see the darker green dots have all been painted over with green pearfect pearls, adding that extra little shine when the card catches the light.

The sentiment also from my stash, had its letters covered in green stickles (along with Roleys megaphone) and was then hung over the edge of the image section.

For some reason this card was hard to photo and I just couldn't seem to get the true colours! But Its a nice bright card, suitable for a birthday celebrating little person ;p

Materials Used:
Striped paper from 'Summer Breeze' paper pack
Pine needle distress ink
Green cardstock
Kanban Elephant and Zebra stamps
Sizzlit embossing folder
Sentiment and tags - Scraps in my stash
Green Stickles
Green perfect Pearls

I really hope you come visit us at CC&CC and play along with our challenge, I can't wait to see everyones creations
