Circus Seal

When I was on the watch for challenge inspiration tonight, I came across A Gem of Challenge's Just for the Boys (#100),  and Brown Sugar Blog, Circus (#62). Combining the challenge drove my color choices and design elements. 

I usually craft with my Cricut for at least one element on my cards. 
But, I don't have a Circus or Fair or Festival Cartridge. 

That's when I turned to and typed in Circus. BAM! 

I have Cricut's Create a Critter Cartridge, and I found my seal. I had lots of other options such as a lion and a circus tent, but I fell in love with the seal. 

I used a bright patterned paper by Echo Park Paper Co. and cut the frame for the design using Cricut's Elegant Edges. 

I added just a touch of chalking on the seal, and I added some glitter around the rim of the platform. A touch of chalk on the juggling balls, and I was finished!


  1. Sooo cute... Love the seal and the bright colors.. Great to have you playing along with us at Brown Sugar. Good luck.
