Thought these images would make a fun birthday card.  Added a sentiment on some tags that I layered and some black enamel accents.

Graphic 45 - Le Cirque Paper
Spellbinders - A2 matting basics A and Back to basics Tags dies
Our Daily Bread design - Mini tag sentiment stamp
Gold brad
Enamel Accents - Black

Sharing a few more pictures, not happy how the sky turned out in these pictures but it will give you an idea of the color in the U.P. of Michigan.

Next we headed up to the Soo Locks, that is looking over to Canada

A big ship coming into the locks

One of the tour boats that takes you through the locks going out as the big ship is coming in the other lock

Thanks for stopping by today!

Connie, your circus card is perfect! From the background to the featured images to the black enamel accents! Love all the colorful leaves in U.P!

Oh, your card! What fun paper and images! Graphic 45 has some of the coolest papers. It makes a super great birthday card and you designed it beautifully with perfect balance. Well done, Connie! Okay, you're making me want to take another trip, showing these beautiful photos. Especially love the old truck and the photo with the mix of trees and colors across the brown field. I'm sure my absolute favorite is the tree-lined road. I see mail boxes... how lovely it would be to live on that lane!

What a beautiful circus card with the Graphic 45 images, Connie! Love the design! Your beautiful photos from your trip remind me of how much I miss seeing the changing of the leaves. Living in Florida, we never get the memo that announces fall has arrived. Lol. Thanks so much for sharing them.

Al and I were just in Ottawa, our nation's capital, and we saw the locks. We tried to take a tour boat but they closed them down and emptied out much of the water after Thanksgiving, so that was a disappointment.

Your circus card is so cute. It looks just like a billboard for a circus coming to town.
