Clowning about

   The theme for this week's challenge at Eureka Stamps is 'red, white and blue'. The papers I used were from the Wild Rose Studio paper stack called 'For Men' and I matted both onto red mirri card before attaching to the base white card.
   The Eureka digi stamp number 24904 is called 'clown on one hand'. I coloured it using Promarkers and cut it out using a Spellbinders postage stamp die. While still in the die I brushed the edges with distress ink. I then matted it onto red core'dinations cardstock which I had cut out using the same die, offsetting it slightly.
   I coloured three card candi using a Promarker pen and attached these to the left hand side of the card. The sentiment was made from peel off letters which I had coloured using a permanent pen.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Cute Card Thursday -  stars and/or stripes
