Clowning Around with Sparkle and Shine

Hello Crafty Friends!  I've been working on a project this week that I'd love to share with you.  A couple week ago my boyfriend gave me a surprise, a Cricut - Cartridge: Teddy Bears Parade I  was so excited and more excited I had chance to finally use it.
I made this cute little guy and the truth it took me a long time but I think he came out sooo... cute. The patterned paper is all DCWV, mostly from the Kidlet stack. All the solid cardstock is by Recollections. I altered his nose inking his nose red with Distress ink and then Glossy Accented his nose, and let it dry 

I used black Stickles on his shirt and fine glitter by Martha Stewart for his ruffle. 

I added Glossy Accents on the dog-shaped balloon, I really wanted it to have a balloon look to it :)
Ribbon is by American Crafts (from the Dear Lizzy collection)  and bakers twine with gold sparkle (from the Target dollar bin).
I made a 5x7 card and I cut the Circus Tent using my cameo out of an SVG. The green tinsel glitter on the circus tent is by Martha Stewart.  I punched the border with a punch by Martha Stewart.  Happy Birthday sentiment is by Pink by Design.

Hope you enjoyed my card.  Happy Crafting!
