Clown time

Hey there! I just wanted to thank everyone who voted in my poll for the next cartridge you'd like to see me use next. So guess which cart won??...It was....
I was actually hoping one of the other carts would win! lol....I've had this cart for awhile and didn't know what do make with it. The images are fun, but different from what I usually like. You can actually do a lot with this cart, there is a card feature, phrases, tags and you can even make gift boxes. 

So, I embraced the challenge and I came up with this fun card using the clown.
I did a lot of inking on the edges ((I was going for a vintage-y look)), I added lots of MS glitter to the hat and nose, and I embossed the green 'hair'.
 I love the 'HB' sentiment, that's a little sneaky peek of the new April release of the EAD co-branding with Paper Smooches

I hope you like it! I think I will make another project with this cart, just for fun.

I have a question for you all, something I've been thinking about for awhile.
Would you like to see me feature a specific Cricut cartridge for a few days at a time? I think it would be fun and it will give me a chance to explore my cartridges more what do ya think? Maybe I'll take another poll! lol..let me know whatcha think! :)

I was also inspired by this week's Mojo Monday sketch 183

Have a great day!

P.S. I just saw that I reached 1400 followers And passed that! Wooohooo! :::Happy Dance!:::: Thank you everyone! I'm still getting together a fun giveaway package, which I will post next week with more details! Thanks for being my follower, I'm very thankful to have you here with me on my crafty journey!

Super cute...and that's saying something since I am not a huge clown fan. LOL! :)

I love your card! I think it would be a great idea to use one cart on a few projects, I have wrap it up and didn't even notice the clown! TFS

I love the embossed hair! Excellent idea!

Alright, I'll admit, I normally don't like clowns, but this one is not scary at all!! :) Great job!
And I think having a featured cartridge for a few days (or even a week) is a great idea! :)
Woo Hoo Hoo!!! on going over 1400!!! I'm still in shock I've got over 100! LOL

This turned out really cute especially since you had to kind of coax it out of yourself. I would love it if you did "cartridge highlight posts".

Ok, I have to confess, I've had that cart since Christmas, and have only used once! It's not what I thought it would be! But your card has changed my mind! I love all the inking, the glitter too!
liz :o)
