Peachy Keen June Sneak Peek Day 3

Welcome Back!
Are you enjoying the circus fun so far?
We are having so much fun with this circus themed release!
We’ve shared adorable clowns, sweet elephants, and the Big Top with you so far, and yes, we’ve got more!  What’s a circus without treats?   Popcorn, peanuts,  candy apples and some funny faces to go along with those goodies are what we have for you.  All that AND MORE!   Tonight we introduce you to the Circus Treats and Clown Car and Elephant stamp sets.
Think back to those days of your own childhood as you experienced your first trip to the circus, and ENJOY!!



For this card I used the Clown Car and Elephant stamp set. I just adore this cute faced clown elephant!
I cut the tent using my Cricut and Paper Doll Dress Up. I embossed the background with the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder and then cut it around the tent. I layered it onto my card base and cut around that layer also to get the shaped card. To finish the tent, I added twine bows to the sides and stickles to the flags and scallop trim. 
I paper pieced the elephant and added some chalk to her cheeks along with some white highlights. I stamped the sentiment onto a square and matted it in purple. I also poked holes in the corners and added a spike to the bottom to make the sign. 
PRIZES :: PRIZES :: PRIZES!
It’s really easy to get your chance to win the stamp sets you see showcased tonight.  Just leave your comment here, on The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog and on our designer blogs and you’ll get one entry to win for each comment you leave.  The lucky winner will be announced tomorrow on the Day #4 Sneak Peek post on the PKS Blog.  GOOD LUCK!!!
So glad you could join us tonight!  One more day of sneak peeks until the BIG RELEASE AND REVEAL BLOG HOP on the 5th!

You're card is absolutely adorable! I never would have thought of cutting the tent with my cricut. You've inspired me to start looking at my cartridges again!! I love what you've done with the little elephants too.
