I was a little discouraged to see this weeks theme challenge and almost did not participate.  I just did not have any of the the stamp sets that stood out in my mind as perfect options to incorporate in completing this challenge.  I decided, last minute, to look outside the box and come up with an entry.  

Starting with Pinterest, I focused on elements other than rides or tents from images of amusement park themed cards.  With a half dozen images that stood out, I began to form an idea and got to work! 

I definitely wanted to start with stripes and a card that had a Art Deco vibe.  One of the Timeless Tags dies immediately popped into by head.  I also decided to include a banner, which did not need a specific stamp set to create.  Especially after looking through my own stamp stash and finding nothing that fit the bill.  Next, a clear sky with billowing clouds offered an addition that would surround a perfect day in which to visit an amusement park.  

The base of my card starts with a Thick Whisper White top folding 4 1/4 X 11" piece of cardstock.  I then adhered a number of 3/4" strips of cardstock in Whisper White and So Saffron diagonally to a thin 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 Whisper White Cardstock base.  

Layering the top of the stripe panel, a sky image included in the Carried Away Designer Series Paper (DSP) is accented with a few popped up Whisper White die cut clouds from the Umbrella Weather Framelits.  

A Thin strip of Basic Gray Cardstock serves as a distinct division between the Clouds and the 3/4" Stripes.  An additional striped panel cut from Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits features DSP from the Succulent Garden Pack layers a brighter Daffodil Delight die cut from the largest die found in the Lots of Labels Framelits.

The Art Deco addition was created using Timeless Tags Thinlits, found in the Occasions Catalog, in Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight, and framed with Basic Gray.  Using two of those colors along with Watermelon Wonder, a banner diagonally crosses the card front cut form the tips of a Stars Framelit and strung with Crushed Curry Bakers Twine.  

Lastly, the small fishtail die from the Window Box Thinlits set formed the Whisper White base layer of the sentiment ensemble, which popped up the So Saffron 3/4" strip finished with fishtail cuts at each end and stamped with a selection from Suite Sentiments in Memento Black. 

Even though, I was not feeling my best today, I am glad I sat down to create an entry for the Global Design Project this week.  

I hope you enjoyed my project and will join me again by signing up as a subscriber to my blog!
