Tag Tuesday - Cutesy!

 

 Is this cutesy? I don't know, but it's just about as close as I can get! Cutesy is the theme over at Tag Tuesday. I love this challenge, but I don't even think I own ONE stamp that could be called cutesy. Ok, there are a couple House Mouse stamps that I bought my daughter when she used to stamp with me, but c'mon. That is too much to ask, Louise!

I thought this stamp from Artistic Outpost's Send in the Clowns collection was pretty cute! I have been dying to try this color combination since I got the latest Anthropologie catalog - it's a vintage circus theme and the colors are so unusual. I love the faded look. My tent background was created using the Faux Painted Paneling technique from the Oct/Nov '09 issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter. The red cardstock is from Paper Temptress.

Louise, I hope I get points for trying! :-)
