Pixie Circus is Coming to Town!

It's almost here! Release Day for the Pixie Circus Collection is tomorrow in the Pixie Dust Studio!
Here are my Peeks for today:
This image is "Wink Blasts Off". Poor, brave Wink! He would do anything for the Pixies; even agree to being shot out of a canon! LOL I am in LOVE with this collection! It was inspired by the book/movie "Water for Elephants". My favorite!

 It takes place in a Vintage era, so I had to add some Vintage touches to this card. I added some tags from Graphic 45, Le Cirque Collection that I found at Archiver's.

 I punched some circles from red, striped DP, cut them in half, and glued them to a strip of red CS to simulate a Circus Tent. Then I added some Stickles for a touch of bling.
 My next peek serves double duty as a sample for this week's Pixie Dust Challenge.
This week's challenge is "Back in Time". Create a Vintage style card or project.

This is "Circus Princess". Reese Witherspoon plays the part of Marlena in the movie. She wore mostly neutral colors in the film. I used neutrals on my card, but I couldn't resist adding some pink. The lace on the card is actually about fifteen years old, so I guess it's somewhat Vintage. :O  Pearls always seem Vintage to me, so I added some. The ribbon is MS. Ticket and DP are from Archiver's.
I hope you'll be inspired to enter this week's Vintage Challenge! Click on the links in my sidebar to visit the rest of the DT. They have some amazing cards showcasing the Pixie Circus Collection. Link your project HERE for a chance to win a Pixie Dust digi of your choice.
