The Circus is in Town!

When I was a girl back to school, fall and Halloween meant the BIG CIRCUS was coming to town.  I loved going to the three ring circus!  My favorite acts to watch were the trapeze artists and the horse back riders!  What were your favorites?

Today I am honoring my memories of the circus with a folding card!

Altered Pages Victorian Circus collage sheet
Dixie Belle Flamingo Paint
Secret Garden 6x6 Pad
Dew Drops
12 x  12 brown cardstock
Tacky Glue
Glue Stick
For base of the folding card cut 12 x  12 brown cardstock 12 x 5 1/2 inches, then with ScorPal score lengthwise at 1 1/2 inches.  Turn and score at 3, 6 and 9 inches.

Dry brush the base brown cardstock with Dixie Belle Flamingo Paint, let dry.
