Bling On The Clowns!

Are you helping Bugaboo Stamps is celebrate their First Birthday?! I've been playing along in all the mini challenges over at Catch The Bug and having so much fun!

Today, I am showing you my card for the Tuesday mini challenge at Catch The Bug. They gave us this cute little clown from Bugaboo Stamps to use on our projects. I've colored him with Promarkers and blinged him up with tiny white pearls in the centers of the flowers and in the puffs on the front of his suit. These fun, bright papers are from my stash and seemed perfect for this card. I love how the flowered paper and the spotted paper coordinate so well. My card layout is from the sketches at Paper Cupcakes and Inspirational Card Sketches. The ribbon is from my stash. These tiny white pearls are from Pizzazz Aplenty and are new to my stash. (If you haven't checked out Pizzazz Aplenty, you definitely need to! They have awesome pearls and rhinestones and other bling, at great prices!) I've used an oval sentiment from Sentiments 4 You, punched with an oval punch by Stampin Up. The purple scalloped oval is embossed (with my Cuttlebug) with the divine swirls folder. I've used foam mounting tape to add dimension and attach the sentiment.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
