Curtain Call Challenge - Carnival Craze

I am new to this challenge called Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  I wanted to try it out and make my first submission with this card.

Lawn Fawn is the sponsor and I of course wanted to incorporate some Lawn Fawn in my card.  All of the pattern papers, EVEN the photo come from THIS 8 x 8 pad from October Afternoon.  I took half sheet of the ticket page and cut then down into strips and adhered them on an angle in different directions.  Then, I was looking through the paper pad and I came across the young couple photo and thought it would be fun to cut it down and put it behind the Polaroid from Lawn Fawn's Say Cheese.  I wanted to make the frame look like it had aged, so I added some Old Paper Distress Ink, and then took THIS calender stamp from Amy Tangerine, and stamped my month ( at random ) and the same for the year using the numbers from THIS Lawn Fawn set and stamped beside the month ( again, I picked a random year).  I adhered my photo onto the card, and then found the "Carnival" strip and the bottom teal strip and also cut those down to size.  
I found the little photo "Ready, Flash" element and added it to the corner of the photo.  This was a different kind of card for me, but I had fun playing with it to get it to the final result.  

It is good to step out of your comfort zone every now and then :)
Thanks for stopping by!
