Send in the clown

     Have you ever made a card and afterwards looked at it and said "What was I thinking?"  Well here's one of mine.  LOL  I LOVE how the image turned out, but I think there's way too much zig zag going on with the DP.  Busy, busy!  I tried three more attempts at doing this card in a totally different style and scrapped everyone of them so I gave up.  Sorry I didn't start you off with a sunglasses warning on this one.  Hope I didn't burn anyone's retinas out.  :-)
     This little cutie patootie is "Miss Clair Clown" and she is part of the May Club Kit from A Day for Daisies.  Take a peek at the whole kit.
     There are some other clown friends for Clair and some bright eyed nymphs.
     Today is normally regular new release day but we had a bit of a hitch in our giddy up this week and got a little ahead of ourselves.  LOL  Here's what the new release looks like and it's available in the new products section of the store.

     Cute huh!  :-)  Don't forget our challenge is still running at the ADFD blog.  Come join in our fun.
     WOOHOOO!  It's the weekend!

  5. I love it too. The white background of the stamped image and the sentiment balances out the colourful DP - and it has tabs and you know how much I love those tabs. xx

  12. WOW! You're not kidding..this is one very busy card, but you know what, I think it has to be. It fits so perfectly with the image. I wish I could have seen the other attempts that didn't pass the mustard. This is superb Tracy. I really like it. A very happy and whimsical card. Did you do something to the balloons? Puff them out or dry emboss from the backside? They look really animated. Maybe it's just your great coloring, but I like the way they appear on your card.

    Have a truly wonderful weekend, H.
