A Card for Two Challenges -Mo's and Cute Card Thursday's

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Easter, I hope your in the Carnival mood as this card has been created for Mos Challenge "Carnival" and Cute Card Thursday's "No Text", I have used one of the Make it Crafty images a Carasol for the background stamp and Mos Candyfloss Girl for the front. Ive printed them both onto white card and used my Copic Pens and my Tria Pens to colour them both, then cut the larger one into a square and mounted it onto yellow pearlescent card. The little girl has been cut out completely ready to decoupage on afterwards.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with one of two papers from the Nitwit Downloads "Big Top" papers and a piece of yellow card for the first mount, then on top of this is a stripped paper from the same set thats had both of its borders bunched with a star border punch from Martha Stewart, this was then stuck down the middle of my first layer.
I then used two stripes of large spotted ribbon as a break at the top and bottom and on top of this towards the right Ive placed my mounted image, and decoupaged my little girl towards the bottom on the left. To finish of Ive printed a banner strip from the same set of Nitwit Downloads and placed it across the top of my card.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
