Greatest Show On Earth

Wow! The weeks just fly by.  Already, it is time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  This time around, we have a challenge around "Good things come in small packages."  Now this was truly a challenge for me!  I can truly say I have never made a project with dimensions this small (2.5" x  3").  
 I decided to make a small accordion style booklet.  When opened, it unfolds between the front and back cover.  The images used are all from Artistic Outpost and the diamond and dot stencils are from Dylusions.  
I thought about several different color schemes, but in the end decided to use cream, black and red to maintain a vintage feel.  After stamping and stenciling, the booklet was distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  

I sure hope you will take a moment and stop over to see the brilliant creations by the rest of the FSC Design Team and I hope, also, that you will submit a project of your own.  Thanks for dropping by! Yvonne
