Mouse Clown

Morning everyone, we have a sunny day here today...... Yay!!! Well it was as I started typing this post.  An hour later as I finish, it is now cloudy. :-(
I am having so much fun creating clown cards at the moment.  Actually, I am surprised and how very few images are available and the fact that clowns are not used that often.  I only have the one image in my collection and that is the Clowning Around Molly I used the other day.
I am not too keen to go out and buy anything for my little challenge so thought I would look at what I have and adapt.

So I grabbed this little mouse stamp I have.  He normally is juggling some words but I decided to add some brads as balls for him to juggle.  I coloured him with my watercolour pencils and hope to give him a little clown costume with a red nose.
I have cut three sections of the background paper and purposely put them on a little wonky.  Finally got to have a go at adding a banner....I have seen these around forever and always love the effect.  So cut out  ten triangles....five blue and five white slightly smaller.  Then added rub-on letters.  I added to blue brads to the card and tied kitchen twin between each of them.  Then adhered the little flags next to the twine.

Ends 3rd May.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Image: Stampin Up - Nice and Easy Notes
Embellishments: Kitchen twine, rub-on letters, misc split pins/brads
Colouring: watercolour pencils.
