A CLOWN--- using carousel

i made this card for this weeks challenge at 
The Cuttlebug Spot

Happy Days
4" square card
this is the clown from the carousel cartridge---cricut lite-- i have just used once before.
the challenge at "the cuttlebug spot" is a sketch.
check it out here.

as you can see i made a mess of my balloons using the aleene's paper glaze. i guess i had some tiny bubbles i did not see. i do not like aleen's glaze much. it takes forever to dry but i lost/misplaced my brand new bottle of glossy accents, grrr! every time i re-organize my craft room, i loose/misplace things. hehe

the blue background paper is dcwv, dry embossed with a cuttlebug folder called "diamonds in the rough" and, sanded. the patterned paper is from k&co and the white you see on the clown's shoes, is a bit of a mess up when tearing. they say "there are no mistakes in crafting, just opportunities for embellishments", so i inked it, hehe
the happy days is from a k&co tag i just pulled apart to use the sentiment.

 see the buttons? they are actually googly eyes...hehe

i decided to frame the inside of the card
well, this is it for now.

did you hear i won a nice candy bundle at shantaie's place?
 she is one of provo craft designers. and i love her work.
if you click on her name you will go to her blog to see what a talented lady shantaie is.
i was so happy because i was having a very disgusting day when i read about it. so....a big yay for me. she already shipped it. another big yay, lol.

thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week.
