I made this card for niece's 18th birthday and decided it would be a good fit
for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Carnival.

The card looks better in person and yes I did go a little crazy with the
distress ink.

The stamp is made by Magenta and I purchased it a couple of years ago.

                                  Tim Holtz Paper Stash - Crowded Attic for the 2nd layer
                                  X - Press It for the stamped image

Ink:                             Memento - Tuxedo Black
                                  Distress - Picked Raspberry & Peacock Feathers

Copic Markers:            BG11, BG13, BG15, N2, N3, RV06, RV09, & RV10

Prismacolor Pencils:    Process Red. French Gray 10%, French Gray 20%, French Gray 70%, 
                                  Cool Gray 70% & Parrot Green

                                  my craft stash.
