Challenge #57 'County Fair' with Dies R Us!








Hello sweet friends! 
Welcome to a new challenge at Dies R US and I sure hope that your week has been good. Today's challenge takes us down to the county fair! So we want to see your projects showcasing anything you would see or do at the county fair or carnival! So here is what I created for this challenge.

 

My card is a standard A2 size on some white cardstock. The patterned paper panel with the coaster is from SEI paper company and the rest of the cardstock is from Stampin' Up. I used several dies today for this card.  I used the Frantic Stamper- Barnyard Chicken & Chick dies for the large and small chickens, the Precious Marieke- Milk Churn & Barrel for the barrel that the owl is standing on.... the Yvonne Creations- Christmas Owls for the cute little owl ... and last but not least, Amy Design- Road Signs for the wooden sign post. Each of these dies can all be found in the Dies R Us store HERE. I am not good with creating scene cards, still need some practice in that area but I am pleased with how this turned out. Normally I would never write on my cards but in this case, I knew I didn't have any stamps small enough that would be able to spell what I wanted the signs to say. I just decided to go ahead and write what I wanted as this card is going to a family member with a couple summer photos. The grass is a border die from MFT and I pushed some of the grass strands forward to give it a realistic look. The ice cream cone, cotton candy and balloon was cut out of the same pattern paper that I used for the background. The large chicken and the owl on the barrel are all popped up on some foam tape. To finish this card off, I used a bit of clear Spectrum Noir sparkle pen and gave some sparkle to the balloon, ice cream and cotton candy and added a few dots in some areas for interest.

    I hope you are enjoying the beginning of fall. Well, at least it is here. We are having only temps in the 60's the past week! Real crisp in the mornings and cool during the days. It definitely is just around the corner for us!
    Have a great day!
