BE Inspired #8 by The Alley Way Stamps

The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS) has an inspirational challenge every other Friday.  This is the Friday - and THIS is the inspiration photo...


I took inspiration from the carnival/fair idea - but also from the circles - a main circle slightly tilted and a variety of circles within the picture.  I used the absolutely darling lion from the newly released Party Animals. Any card would look cute with that little face!!

Love how you captured all the colours, plus the 'whirly' feeling of the ride by using that embossing plate on your background!
