Under The Big Top Circus TY Card

Heard recently that Barnum & Bailey Circus will no longer have Elephants in the circus performances and that all Elephants they have will be sent to a nature preserve in FL to live out their lives.

Did some paper piecing creating this Circus Thank You Card. I thought the circle sentiment looked perfect for a ball for the seal to balance.
