Clownin' Around

A smidge late with the April Fools "celebration", but I wanted to jump on the joke band wagon and do a punny card:-) I ended up sizing this card as an A7 (5x7) so I didn't have to make all of the clothing too tiny or the banner too small. I started with the sketch from Die Cuttin' Divas challenge. I used some patterned cardstock from DCWV Grade School scrapbook kit. The polka dot brads are from Paper Studio. The clown is cut using the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge. I made the smallest pom-pon I think I have ever made using bakers twine (sorry, not sure where it came from). I dry embossed the hair with the Script Cuttlebug folder and the green oval with the Polka Dots Cuttlebug folder. The scalloped oval was cut using Cricut Craft Room Basics. I stamped the face with PKS 450 Wide Eyed Kids. I didn't use the nose that cut with the image because it was too big so I simply used my regular sized hole punch and popped it up with the tiniest piece foam adhesive I could cut. With a little trial and error, I sized and printed my joke onto a banner from the Christmas Cheer cart. I used a downloaded  font, Circus, for the printing.

Why did the clown go to the doctor?
