Flight of Challenge (CPS 119 and 365 Cards Day 100)


Given the problems I had photographing the last card to look like it was supposed to I saw this message stamp in the drawer and thought it would be appropriate for my next card.  This combines two challenges, Card Positioning System's 119 sketch (see above) and 365 Cards' Day 100.  Day 1oo is called Manic Monday and requires the use of 5 bold colors on your card, RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN and BLUE ... no pastels. If you squint the big top and acrobats slightly resemble a butterfly too!
