I Like to Catch Brass Rings on the Merry-Go-Round

As I had previously said - what was I thinking - I had purchased Studio G 3 x 3 cards at Michael's for a dollar and thought I would make little cards - - - WELL, that means my image was tiny and I only had a 3 x 3 working space and area to color:

I used to go to church camp in the late 60's and I can remember singing a silly song AND it even had motions: "I Like to Catch Brass Rings on the Merry-Go Round". Strange how an image inspires a song or a memory with me!!!

  • Studio G 3 x 3 cards with scraps for the background
  • Beccy's Place Carousel Horse with Scallops is a freebie which was colored using Spectrum Noir and Whisper Strokes Markers, Prisma Colored Pencils with gel pen accents, and fussy cut around the edges
  • bunting punch with scraps for the "carousel" and then faux stitched around the edges
  • 1/8-inch Darice ribbon on top and tied in a bow with a button accent which was a scrap piece 
  • Miriam's Crafting Supplies Silver Tone Made For You Charm
  • sentiment, "Just Because", had been a previous freebie from Create with TLC and was mounted on scraps which has a lacey finish using Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace Border Punch along with a retro lace on top

Viola - a special little card to slide into a gift
