Life is like a Carousel - Card

First off let me tell you that one thing a person needs to do is double check spell check when using Microsoft Word! This cute little carousel card almost turned out to be a dirty meaning carousal card!

Linda and I saw this paper at the scrapbook store and I just couldn't resist picking up a few pieces to use on some cards. I wasn't sure at the time what I would do but couldn't wait to try it out!

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression
Cricut Carousel cart
Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder
Various carstock
3bugsinarug Ashtyn paper
K&Co. pattern paper
Signo UM 153 white gel pen
Colorbox Cateye Chalk Ink
Cri-Kit gel pens
Microsoft Word
Hallmark Card Studio

The card actually measures 6.25 x 4.5

As you can see by the inside sentiment that reads
"Sometimes you're up
and sometimes you're down,
and sometimes you
just go round and round!
Just remember to enjoy the ride!"
this card could have been a naughty little card if I had not caught that MS word changed Carousel to Carousal!

The ticket was a little difficult to cut since the lettering was so small that I decided to use the Cri-Kit gel pens to do the "ADMIT ONE" and the colored in with a marker. I had to use Design Studio to hide contour on the parts I didn't want drawn and then I went back after changing the blade housing and cut the rest of the ticket.

I still have some of this paper and not sure what else I might do with it but I think the brightness and cheeriness of it would be good for a pick me up card or even a child's birthday, used with the right sentiment of course!!
