Send in the Clowns!

No "clowning around",
 it's a new inspiration week by the wonderful
 Riley and Company DT!
This week, DT member Heather asked us to create a card
 with the theme "Send in the Clowns!"
I know some people do not like clowns, 
but I promise Riley the Moose is by far the cutest lil Moose on the planet ♥
In fact, Riley and Company has a line of fun circus themed stamps :)

For my card today, I've used Juggling Riley, perfect for the theme 
of my day, every day!
I've paired it with one of the circus themed stamp sentiments - perfect
words in a busy day to always have fun!  
And you know I love me some patterned paper, 
so I was thrilled to find this clown + circus themed dsp in my stash - score!

and the inside :)

I hope today is a fun one for you, too!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
