A DAY FOR DAISIES SHOWCASE - MISS CLAIR CLOWN

The itty-bitty cutie pie image on my card is called "Miss Clair Clown, and she's available in the A Day for Daisies store here


I merged the image with a digital image of a circus tent before printing and colouring using alcohol markers.

I also used the following:

A DAY FOR DAISIES : SPRING FLOWER HAIR


It's my turn today to post a project on the A Day for Daisies blog, and my card features the beautiful image called Spring Flower Hair.

I coloured the image using alcohol markers and a white gel pen.

The image is matted onto pink cardstock, and  pink and orange polka dot ribbons are the embellishment.  A metal charm with the words 'Live, Laugh, Love' is certainly a perfect recipe for happiness, I think!
