Carnivals and fairs near me have been cancelled this year due to Covid-19 but the colorful photo week challenge with Just Us Girls seemed inviting as did the sketch with Sunday Stamps. My carnival is located on the boardwalk at the shore. This stamp is an older red rubber wood mounted Inkadinkadoo stamped in Distress Vintage Photo ink and popped up on some red cardstock. The next layer for the sketch challenge is white cardstock embossed with a Happy Birthday cuttlebug embossing folder. This was getting as little busy even for me so I opted for some ribbon as the next layer and finished off with fireworks using simple stories fireworks stencil and GKD glitz glitter gel.
Moral of the card — no carnivals but we can still be happy and enjoy fireworks as long as they aren’t lighting the sky every night.

Some of the joys of summer, even if it is in the form of a card. Ribbon was a great add.
LOL…I was having trouble adding another layer to this already busy card. My fireworks turned out great and was sad to cover them up.
Love your glittery fireworks! Great card for the challenges.
Super card. I love the carnival stamp – the roller coaster reminds me of the one at the amusement park I went to as a kid. The fireworks are a perfect backdrop.
Love your card! The sketch with the carnival and fireworks look so fun.
What a fun stamp – I haven’t done a carnival in years! Love that fireworks background especially! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!
You said it so well! I’m missing all the fairs and things that have been cancelled, but we are having a nice summer anyway. You have to make your own fun, and it can be done even during these times. Love that carnival image and how you showcased it on your pretty card. Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!
Nothing brings back fond memories like a carnival and fireworks.
I LOVE your fireworks! This is a great card and definitely a fun way to “enjoy” the carnival, as we can’t do so IRL.
I love this! Your solo stamped image really pops against your fun glitter gel background. Thanks so much for joining this weeks challenge at Sunday Stamps!
Great fireworks and you are right we have to make our own fun during this crazy time. Love the card and the design really works.
