This card was created for the fortnight challenge "Any Sentiment You Want" at Aud Sentiments. A Day For Daisies graciously provided images for the design team to use.

I started with an A2 size base card in a yellow-gold color. The "Vintage Bell Clown" image was printed out and I colored him with Copics. This layer was matted with the base card CS. The next step was to stamp the background with the Print Pattern using "Wild Honey" & "Rusty Hinge" Distress Inks. Extra stamp-offs of this were used for the tag and for the interior. To kick up the texture and detail, I added gold foil to the bow tie and to the dingle-bells hanging off his clothing & the bells. Faux brads were created for the intersection point of the diamonds in the background by using a 1/16th hole punch, gluing the hole centers down and then applying gold foil to them. The interior has faux stitches around the message panel.
