Clownin' Around With A Pogo

Whoo Hoo! Are you ready?! It's New Release Tuesday at Bugaboo Stamps! We have this adorabkle clown release for you, today.  He's perfect for a birthday card, isn't he?!

There are lots of other creations featuring this silly clown, too. Check out Catch The Bug for more featured projects from the team! You'll be glad you did!

My  card today, a birthday card, features the image Clown Around - Pogo, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. My card layout uses the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy. I went with a fun mix of papers and created a monochromatic background. All papers are from my stash.  I used purple gemstones and a purple polka dotted handmade bow, to embellish. The sentiment is by Sentiment 4 You and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.
