Share Handmade Kindness - Cards for Kids

Hello Friends! Happy Saturday! Short post today, as I've got a mountain of things I need to tackle. This week the focus for the Share Handmade Kindness Challenge is creating cards for kids. When I saw that I thought about MelJen's Designs and I knew exactly which image I wanted to use. 

I also decided to use sketch #213 from Freshly Made Sketches. I haven't used a sketch in a while and when I saw this one on Facebook, I thought it would be perfect with the image I had in mind.

I've used this digi several times but, he's so darn cute, I couldn't resist using him again. I know you all remember the MelJen's Designs Circus Clown...

I printed this little guy onto a die cut piece of smooth white card stock and colored him with Copic markers. I placed the panel back into the die and then dusted on blue ink. Next, using my MISTI I added the greeting. Then, I accented some of the lines with a glitter pen, I added clear Wink of Stella to his nose, Sparkly Fluff to the puff on his hat and Crystal Effects to his nose and shoes.

I mounted him onto a piece of craft foam and adhered it to my card base and that was that!

Thank you for visiting me today. I appreciate it! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
