Our Quirky pets.

I should have made this card last week, apologies to Bugaboo who are one of our two sponsors this time. The images are from the brand new Mini Kit Kidz Clowns, such a cute set with lots of images and the sentiment, I haven't used all of them there is one very cute girl in a clown costume one too, great value for money - or you could win it!
I coloured the images with Promarkers, and added some white Prismacolor pencil to the girl's face afterwards for clown make up. I cut round the image and mounted it on red sparkly card. The badge is cut with Spellbinders circles and scalloped circles. The paper was free with a magazine, so happy I remembered it as it is perfect here. I added some grosgrain ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, eyelets. a star button, mini pom poms and bakers twine. I recently bought this cute ticket die by Trimcraft, (with one other really cute die) called Fun Fair,  which the wonderful Sam Hirst of Samaflora kindly got for her friends at the cost she bought them at (plus postage) they were a bargain and I really appreciate it, again this was perfect for this card and is one of the row of three tickets. I just kept thinking of these little bits to add to the card, I had so much fun making this, I regret there are some marks on the green card I didn't see - hand cream I think!

 I made a detachable pin brooch too, it was supposed to pin through two holes but the layers made it too thick to do properly, so I added twine through the holes and pinned the brooch to the twine. I worry about pins on cards for children, I am not sure what age they are safe but I would give this to an adult too.
Inside the card I used the same paper, and the other two die cut tickets, a die cut panel with a Spellbinders die, and the brooch is here again detached.

A flat view of the inside.

Back of the pin brooch, it's got a safety catch - I have a whole bag of these.

We are also sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps and I hope to have another example or two later.
