Clown Birthday Card

This week, the design team on Bitten By The Bug were asked to use the clown from the Paper Dolls cartridge. I have never made one of these little figures before, I don't know why, but I just can't warm to them, so this was not my favourite challenge. However, 'clowns' said Regina, so clowns it is. That's one of the things I love most about BBTB, it always forces me to think outside the box. Challenge is the right word for it. Take a look over on the site at all the different interpretations of the cut. My favourite this week is Sharon's card, she has done such a great job on the face.
So I am all ready for my next adventure - I fly back to Florida tomorrow, for three months. My cases weight a ton, how can that be when I have a full closet of clothes over there? It must be all those 'just in case' objects that have sneaked in when I wasn't paying attention.

I think I agree with you about warming to this character. He feels a little sinister and not quite fat or jolly enough to me. However, that apart, I love what you have done with the rest of the card -especially the umbrella.
Bon voyage!
