Trapeze Artist

Belatedly,I upload the card I made for my daughter's birthday - it was on Valentine's Day, hence the heart. She was having a party with her friends in a circus-themed restaurant and I took this idea and was inspired by one of my favourite pictures ( Miss Lala at the Cirque Fernando) to feature a trapeze artist.

The trapeze artist was digitally cut from an SVG border file, then electronically cut on the Silhouette Cameo. I also cut the frame, heart, bunting and the sentiment shape (after typing in the sentiment). I added shimmery paper, glitter, background paper (Tim Holtz) , gems and a feather and I embossed the heart.
