Red, White and Blue Birthday Card......{Challenge Card}

Happy Saturday everyone!! Hope you are all having a GREAT holiday weekend!!!
I wanted to pop in with a non DT project and share a card I made to enter into a few  fun challenges! I used this week's Seize the Birthday sketch...
(If you have not played along in their challenges..you really should check them out! I LOVE their sketches and entered my birthday card from last week's The Kraft Journal post and won!!) Anyways here is the sketch
And here is my take on it....
Since I originally started this card for the Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge I of course wanted something that I could cut and use my PK faces on... and I remembered I had this adorable circus clown from Miss Kate Cuttables that I had wanted to use and knew he would look adorable with his Piles of Smiles PK face.
 (I so need some new face stamps too..going to take advantage of their sale this weekend...recommendations on what to get?????)
I was so excited that I was able to use some of my new My Creative Time goodies too~ the Journal It! Stamp Set, Stitched Journal Die and the Many Greeting Stamp Set for the "Happy Birthday".
I didn't check the month box or add in the year so whenever or whomever uses this can do so themselves.
In keeping with the Red, White and Blue color theme, I added some of my FAVORITE Trendy Twine~ Stars and Stipes for the balloon strings. If you don't have this color yet...you need it! It is a must have for the summer holidays.... 
Memorial Day...Flag Day...4th of July and Labor Day~
Here he is closer...isn't he adorable??? Some people think clowns are scary...not this little guy right???!?!!! He actually has a cream colored face and white shirt...kinda hard to tell in the picture :( Sorry about that. I tried to make, photo and picture this all before the lighting got bad here.
Anyways, I wanted to add a bit more to him so I stickled his nose and shoes using X-Mas red Stickles, added some tiny brads to his suspenders and some white gel pen to his eyes.

Well there you have it! Hope you have enjoyed my birthday card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT rest of your weekend!!!
