High Wire Lady

Here's one of the two cards I submitted to this round of calls for Paper Crafts Magazine. I wasn't surprised not to receive a "happy email" today since neither of my cards really wowed me :) I just figured what the heck and submitted anyway. Now I get to join in the "reject" blog hop so head over to Dr. Amber's blog and show a little love for some of the other rejects out there!

I picked up a mat pack from Graphic 45 that is all old time circus themed. I can't even say why I did because I don't really like the circus or even the vintage style of the papers but it was a stretch...something new for me. I cut out this chick walking the high wire from a very busy sheet of DP and placed her on a black thread. I embellished her dress with some orange glitter pen for a little flair.

I think this is going to be a fun card to give to one of the amazing women in my life. So many of them impress me more than any high wire walker does!

This is such a sophisticated take on Circus and I love it! That background paper is beautiful. Thanks for being a part of the blog hop and helping rejection look so good!
