It's Time to Clown Around!

It's time for another challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations!! 
I hope you'll come over and join us. 

We are sponsored this week by Paper Pretties !

Paper Pretties is generously providing a prize of SIX digi stamps to our randomly chosen winner.

Thanks so much for sponsoring our challenge, Paper Pretties!

Each challenge, we give you an inspiration cupcake and you make a card or other craft project that is inspired by the cupcake.  

Here is this week's cupcake.
Ruby Slipper Cupcakes by The Alison Show

I used the Cirque image and sentiments on this happy birthday card. And isn't it happy?!?!

I colored the image up using my Prismacolor pencils and added Glossy Accents to the first balloon, nose, shoes, and glittery parts. The glitter is from Turquoise Stickles. The rhinestones are from the Target dollar section.

The papers are from the Birthday Wishes stack by DCWV. I matted my image and card with Tempting Turquoise Stampin' Up card stock.  

On the inside, I added another sentiment and some scraps from the same paper collection. 

Thank you for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
