Clean & Simple/Big Top Birthday

There are times I just can't figure out what to do with certain papers, but looking through my stash yesterday and after seeing the sketch from Clean & Simple, I decided this was the perfect paper for this sketch.  So I just used a one of my punches, and my bigshot and dies and this is what came out of it.  The clown is punched out from the paper and also the ball.  I took the stamp from teeny tiny wishes and colored the happy with a marker, stamped it and then colored the birthday and stamped it.  It is not perfect, but it works.

Here is a side view!

And of course I used a couple more stamps for the inside!

I used the sale-a-bration stamp Outlined Occasions and then the stamp from Create a Cupcake to finish it off!  Perfect card for a child or for an adult!
