...and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings

I’ve got a shape card to share today featuring the fun Trapeze Ariel from the Jude at the Circus collection from Simply B Stamps.

There’s so much movement to this image that I just didn’t want to stick Ariel on a boring square card so I went with a round one, following the current sketch at Die Cuttin’ Diva’s.  I think I’m pretty safe meeting their die cut requirement, pretty much every element of my card was die cut.

I wanted to give the impression of Ariel just hanging in the air so I fussy cut her and attached her trapeze to a piece of twine that looked like rope.  I also printed the great sentiment that comes with the image on a piece of paper with a grid pattern that looks to me like a net.
The current challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks calls for a shaped card so I am entering my card over there.  I’ve also got an image of a girl on my card so I’m linking this up at the current DL.ART Thankful Thursday challenge too.
