Clown with Balloons Valentine

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for stopping to visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. 

This will be a quick post because we are going out to dinner to celebrate my brother-in-laws birthday. I am so excited to be able to see them and actually go to a restaurant. They are all open in our area at 50% capacity. I feel as though life may be starting to return to somewhat normal. 

Now onto my post for today. This is an older card that I forgot to post on my blog earlier.
This one I created for the color challenge #825. Karen was our hostess and she chose gorgeous grape, granny apple green and coastal cabana for her color trio. Optional was to use pearls. I couldn't get it to work with this card.

I decided to use these colors for a non-traditional Valentine. It's went out to a little 5 year old boy so the colors were good for him.

I used a new CottageCutz die Clown with Balloons. It's part of a circus release but I used it for this Valentine card.

I Cut the clown in the challenge colors plus designer paper in the challenge colors. My background designer paper is from the Stampin' Up "have a cuppa" collection. I added a few hearts cut in gorgeous grape cardstock.

My Valentine sentiment is from the CottageCutz "be my valentine puppies" die. Well that's it for me for this post. Time to start getting ready for the celebration. So until next time........God bless.
