I diecut a the giraffe and lion’s cage from ivory cardstock and then stamped the coordinating images from Circus Spectacular on each.  I also cut a ticket strip from Taffy cardstock and then stamped a couple of the ticket images.  I tore the tickets apart before adhering to the card using foam dimensionals.  Behind all of the images (and a piece of burlap ribbon) I added a piece or red cardstock cut with the largest die from the Designer Labels 4 STAX.
