Created this card using:
1. Lawn Fawn Admit One stamp set
2. paper pieced by stamping the cotton candy on white cardstock, then again on pink cardstock, used Tim Holtz spun sugar Distress Ink on edges, cut out the pink to place over the white and finally using cotton ball with pink glitter on it for full effect
3. paper pierced the tickets using Stampin' Up piercing tool to pierce that you can see in close up photo
4. added buttons & twine

Definitely a cute card but not one to put in the mail.

When I was younger I liked to go to the annual carnival fair that was sponsored by the Catholic school I attended. I liked Candy Apples as opposed to Cotton Candy.
