Carnival Cotton Candy You're Sweet Card

I like carnivals but not fond of Cotton Candy but know that others are. Fun to go to a Carnival in the Summer and other times during the yr. When younger the church/school I went to for 1st - 8th grades held a Fair in the Fall on the church grounds. I enjoyed playing the Cake Walk game that was played like musical chairs game.

For the shaped Carnival Card I used a Spellbinder Labels die to resemble ticket shape. Used pink color scheme. Used lawn fawn Admit One stamps. Added button, Distress Ink, glitter & twine.
