Carousel Dreams

This image from the latest Elisabeth Bell for SCACD release, Sampler Edition #5, is just so gorgeous!! Be sure to check out my design team sister, Kim, and her creation using this fabulous image, it's beyond amazing!! See it HERE.

Takes me back to my childhood when my great grandmother would take me to the amusement park and one of my favorite rides was the carousel. Although I was a bit of a scaredy cat and didn't like the horses that went up and down until I was older.

Sadly my motion sickness has increased a bit since my youth and the last time I tried to ride a carousel with my kids I got very, very ill. Sigh.

But enough rambling, onto the card~ I love the new Memory Box papers that Susana is carrying! Gorgeous!! Normally I color my image and then pick my papers but I knew I wanted to use these Jubilee papers so I did the reverse on this card. 


When looking to embellish this card, I was going through my drawers and found my Petaloo Flora Doodle butterflies, I thought it looked so pretty on the card. To balance the butterfly out, I added some Kaisercraft Pearls in the opposite corner.


To finish the card I added sparkle! I used copic glitter pens on the saddle and vines/leaves and then used my Viva Decor Glitter liner on the flowers.

That is a beautiful stamp and you colored it so nicely! The carousel has always been my favorite ride at carnivals, too. Even at theme parks, I just wanted to ride the carousel over and over. I don't like roller coasters. Sorry your motion sickness makes it so you can't even enjoy them now!
