My Circus Tag

OOOPS!  There were so many fun products this month at Gecko Galz that when I wrote my extremely long inspiration post, I forgot one of my samples.  I personally happen to think this one is a hoot, so I decided to give it it's own post.  Be sure to scroll down to see the others and grab the Freebie Stamp I'm offering, courtesy of Gecko Galz.

Gecko Galz Products used: Life is a Circus Digital Paper pack, Circus Time Digital Stamps, Icons from the August Curiosity Shop Digital Craft set.

Other: Metal stars, baker's twine, tiny buttons, eyelet and pom pom trim (all from my stash), Semicircle Die from Heartfelt Creations, Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap.

Instructions:  Size Circus paper in printing program and crop and recolor the top of the Life is a Circus stamp from Circus Time Digital Stamp set and positiion on top with enough head room to use the die.  Also add the banner digitally and print.  Trim sides and bottom and use die on top for the scallop and ink edges with distress.  Print another banner with added words, along with the monkey and ticket (words also added) from the Curiosity Shop Icons, fussy cut, ink and pop on tag.  Punch hole in top and add eyelet and twine.  Embellish with trim, stars and buttons.

I'm entering this in the Simon Says Monday Ticket Please Challenge, the Simon Says Wednesday ATG Challenge, Crafting With an Attitude ATG, Inspiration Destination ATG, Papertake Weekly Take Your Pick (Buttons) and the DL.Art August Linky Challenge.
