Carnival at CASology


Are you ready for a brand new cue word challenge over at CASology? This week, we’re going to a carnival. Well, some of us are, anyway. I’m going on a cruise. With Carnival Cruise Lines. Just kidding. I have no desire to go on a cruise!  I’d rather go hiking somewhere and avoid the open sea, but that’s just me!  I have friends who enjoy taking a cruise now and then, so this card will be theirs next time they venture onto one of those big ships!

I masked the big sun and used yellow and orange as the colors.  The ocean liner was fussy cut and popped up with foam dots for dimension.  I added the three black gemstones to add a little interest while creating a bit of a visual triangle for the design.

I hope you’ll take the time to visit the rest of the design team members’ blogs as well as this week’s talented guest designer’s blog!  There is some rather awesome CARNIVAL inspiration for you to see!

Don’t forget to link up your own creation on the challenge blog by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CST)!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    Ah HA! BRILLIANT! I've never been on a cruise, either (although I did take an overnight boat ride from England to Holland…my poor DH did not feel well on that ride!). I love the masked sun and the contrast of the blue cruise ship against it. Gorgeous!
