For my card this week I have used this fun image Crusty Clown by Lil Diva to make a birthday card for my Brother in Law. He has a property and finance business and works very hard so I wanted to use this image with some buttons to denote him successfully juggling all his many projects.

I coloured the image with Promarkers &Flexmarkers picking out the colours from the papers I have used from Dovecraft. I have created 4 layers of decoupage and layered on 3d foam.
I used a sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for the layout and used a fine line pen to add faux stitches to the layers. There is a mixture of buttons from different sources and a sentiment from Craftwork Cards to finish off.
