Ka-POW! Creative Challenge

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. Today my six-year-old is pumped because his best friend is having a birthday party at a place called "The Bounce Depot." When I pick him in three hours, I'm sure he will be full of sugar and all sweaty from bouncing. Ahhh...the joys childhood. Can you remember the last birthday party you came away from in the same condition? I can't! At any rate, this is the card I put together for the birthday boy and I used Carrie Gaskin's challenge to help me with the layout. I know it shouldn't have a strip of paper across the top, but that big top banner hides an OOPS mistake I made when I stamped the sentiment upside-down. I wish all my mistakes were that easy to cover up:) Thanks for checking it out!

Materials used: Stampin Up Big Top Birthday DSP, Tempting Turqoise CS, Real Red CS, Daffodil Delight CS, Fox and Friends stamp set, Black ink, Scallop edge punch, scallop circle punch, circle punches, Holly Berry Buttons, Star punch
