Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Carnival Craze


Welcome back to another Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!  This time our theme is "Carnival Craze" and it is sponsored by Lawn Fawn.  That means the Show Stopper for this challenge will win some goodies from them :)  Stacey has put together this fabulous collage for us to work with and it has me wanting to go to a fair LOL! 


I used Lawn Fawn's Blue Skies set. What a fun set indeed - just love the hot air balloons!  Since I'm not much of a colourer, I paper pieced them and added the pennant banner across the large one for a bit of colour.   A crimped cloud (could be a first LOL) a few scattered hearts, an arrow and bows on the balloons finished things off.
