Today is a very special day for the Lovebug Creations Creative Team.

It’s Dawn Rene’s birthday!


To wish her a happy day I created a Circus-Themed birthday card and I’m so excited to share it with you!  First, I have to tell you about the Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon. I used Simply Blue, from the Star Spangled collection, and William, from my favorite collection, Family Ties.

And, I used some Dark Yellow Mama’s Mesh to give this project a little texture and interest.

I picked up a Graphic 45 Stack, Le Cirque, from my favorite scrapbooking store, Paper Tales, in San Diego, CA quite a while back and I’ve been hoarding it waiting to use it. Dawn Rene’s card is the perfect reason to break out this paper and start creating. This card took me to Doodle Town!

There’s so many great vintage circus icons in this paper collection that my mind was on overload trying to narrow down the choices!
