NSU - The Circus is in Town

In a couple of days I'll be catching up with a dear friend I haven't seen in a while who has recently landed a plum job with the Moscow Circus! She always credits me with her job success (she's a past student of mine), but it is really her courage and determination that got her through from a sad background to the confident, successful person she is now and I am so proud of her achievements. There are some lyrics from a song that always make me think of her -

I've been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself
Flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

Naturally I wanted to make her a circus themed card! Here tis:

The animal stamp, rub on and papers are Kaiser and I love the little bits of sparkle and shine in them. The sentiment from SU seemed perfect. On the inside I've carried over the Big Top theme:

Hope your day is filled with friendship. Thanks for stopping by.
