Colour Q #72

Hey bloggies...
A card to share with you today.... a card I really struggled with. I have a huge pile of off cuts in these colours now, looking at me forlornly... I inked up so many stamps and still couldn't come up with anything! Until this -
I wanted to make it look like the circus, so there is the bunting, and the mixed animals.... although, I have never seen a fox, owl or whale at the circus... hehe.... It's a fairly simplistic card when it comes down to it.... the bunting is actually only tied to the front of the card, and moves.... 
These colours are for the Colour Q challenge #72... which was a daunting one.. 
Anyway, I have to get ready to head to the craft store... I keep forgetting I need blades for my paper cutter.... So, a trip down to the craft store to replace them.... and a look around never hurt anyone hehe :P
Happy Stamping!

Jess, this turned out so CUTE! I love your circus idea, and the banner is adorable with the doodled patterns. The frame you drew is a great finishing touch. Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ this week!
