Clowning Around - OSAAT #264

Hello my friends.  Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a good weekend with no weather disasters.  It's been a crazy time down here in H Town - lots of rain and flooding in places it has never flooded before. Thankfully, I live in an area that does not flood which is also good for my caterpillars and butterflies. They do not like all the rain we've been having.

I want to bring you the card that I made for this challenge for One Stitch at a Time. The theme this time is Anything Goes With Layer It Up! So use lots of layers on your project.
 Materials Used:
  • Image - Clowning Around from BB Cakes
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - That's the Ticket
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Summer Sun, Ruby Red, Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Stampin Up 
  • Ink - Stampin Up
  • Accessories - Martha Stewart Fir Branch Punch; Stampin Up Balloon Punch; twine from my stash; flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; Stampin Up Ticket Punch

Our sponsor for this challenge is our own Stitchy Bear and one lucky winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to Stitchy Bear Stamps.  Good luck to all of you who enter. I hope you will take the time to play along.

Before I go, I want to let you all know that this is my last post for One Stitch at a Time. I am stepping down as part of the Design Team, but wanted to let Stitchy, Jane, and all the Design Team members that I've worked with over the last few years how much I enjoyed working with them and seeing their projects for every challenge. It's been a blast, but time to move on to new things.

  1. What a fabulous card Maggie - love your layering and vibrant colours. Fussy cutting the image really makes it eye catching.
    hope you dry out soon there in Texas.

  2. So cute with the balloons and dimension! The flowers, designer paper, lace, and doily dress it up just right. I think about you up there on your hill every time I see that weather on the news. That's a lot of rain and trouble! Even though you're stepping down from One Stitch at a Time I hope you'll still be around. I would miss you!

  3. So cute and pretty too. Love the little popped up balloons and all the fun layers.
    Know you're going to be missed on the DT.
