RTB132 – Carnival Fun

It’s another Raise the Bar Friday and I’m here to celebrate with a carnival theme!
We want to see all your bright and fun cards this week, so bring ’em on, friends!

Carnivals are so nostalgic. They bring out the kid in me and I just love all the bold elements that a fun fair represents. I have been wanting to use my Spectacular girl for awhile now and when Joni came up with this challenge, I knew she was the perfect fit!

Here’s a closer look at my card. I’m really happy with my colouring this time AND my paper piecing of the little girl’s dress. I actually used a trimmed down toothpick for my pinwheel base:

Hope to see you playin’ along! If you upload to any online galleries, please label RTB132 as your keywords for the Raise the Bar challenge. To see what the other Bar-tenders have created, please check out all of their blogs below:
