FUN Birthday Wishes & PPPR Files!

Hello Everyone, It's my day to post over at PPPR!! This is my first post on my blog today, check back at 8:00am to see my Some Odd Girl creation.
 I have recently been selling my creations at my place of work and my customers have been requesting birthday cards, so for this card, that's what I focused on.
Well I have one down in the books, now I just have a bunch more to create lol.
I used the adorable Juggling Clown Cutting Files, you can find him in the $0.99 section of the store.
Juggling Clown Cutting Files
I used the print and cut feature in my Silhouette Studio designer, to cut out this adorable little guy. I decided to add some shading/shadowing to his face using my IG1 Spectrum Noir marker. I wanted to add more dimension to him, so I added some homemade enamel dots, for his juggling ( Thanks for the idea Lisa) :) I also added some glossy accents to his nose and popped up and layered some elements on him.
I have been hoarding these big metal letters for awhile now and thought this card would be perfect for them. My sentiment is from Scrappy Mom Stamps and is called, Simple Sentiments. I finished it up by adding some ribbon, Lemonade Yellow, Timeless Twine and a button from my stash.
I hope you all enjoy my fun birthday card and thank you for stopping by!!
