Bring in the Clowns... WINNER

 This wonderful vintage clown image is one of a set of three from A Day for Daisies.  OMG!  I am in love with them and I will be doing the other two soon.  Colored with Copics, layered on Basic Grey with foam tape and then embellished with Kandi, ribbon and the sentiment on the pennant. I debated distressing the edges but decided to "frame" the clown with hand drawn lines done with a Micron .01 black pen. I think that looks good with this image.

This card should be eligible for the following:
