Just for Kids Challenge

Hi, thank you for stopping by to see what I have created today.  I am hosting a Fiztown challenge this week called "Just for Kids".  I just love making cards for little kids as the little ones in my family all know. Here is my card for the challenge. 

I thought I would make a colourful card this week with one of the images from Fitztown's vintage images. I paper pieced the clown from pattern papers from my stash and layered it on some colourful paper also from my stash. To complete this card I added a ribbon, sentiment and a little bling.

I hope you will join me this week and create a card and enter it here.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Craft-Dee BowZ - Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow 
My Craft Creations - Always Anything Goes
Stamping Sensations -August Challenge Anything Goes

The Squirrel & The Fox - Anything Goes
