A Clown for You

Hello everyone!  Just a quick post from me this Sunday morning.  I wanted to share with you a card I made with the digital image A Clown for You from artist Katerina Koukiotis.  It is this month's image for the Sweet Pea Stamps Progressive Facebook Challenge.

This is a 5x7 card on a White Daisy cardstock base. The patterned papers are from the new CTMH paper pack Kaleidoscope.   I absolutely love this paper pack.  You will definitely be seeing more of this paper pack.  I colored my little clown with Copics.  I felt like he needed something, so I used my SSS Balloons die set and cut out a little balloon from the same Xpress It paper and colored it with Copics as well.  I coated it and highlighted his hair with Wink of Stella.  When I got through with the card I just thought he needed something else... a clown nose!  I colored a little piece of scrap Xpress It and then used a tiny hole punch to make a little circle for his nose.  After attaching it, I used a small dot of glossy accents to give it a little dimension and shine.  

I'll be entering this card in a few challenges, which I will list below, along the supplies I used.

That's it for me this morning  Thanks for stopping by!
