Happy Birthday Clown

Good morning!!  Lorie here today, and I have a fun card to share with you.  With all the fairs, festivals, and fun things going on as Summer winds down, it couldn't be a more perfect time for this carnival release.  For my card today, I used the Clown Game die from the carnival release, as well as the Ornate Circle Frame from the My Little Shoebox release.
All of the pieces for this creation were cut with colored card stock, and shaded by sponging using the same tone ink as card stock.  I did add some highlight to some of the pieces by sponging with white craft ink, and I added more stark highlights with a white gel pen.
When creating this card, I followed Angelica's new challenge for The Scrapping Cottage Blog.  You can find all the details in her post, here.  I sure hope you can play along, Angelica comes up with some of the best sketches I've ever worked with, and I DO so love sketches!!  You have a full month to come up with a card, layout, or project using the sketch below, and there will be a random winner of a $25 gift certificate to The Scrapping Cottage drawn from all the entries. 

Wishing you a blessed day and lots of happy crafting!
