Adorable, Janiel. I've been meaning to stop by and tell you how fabulous Tilda is with that darling pom pom or her nose. She looks gorgeous with or without. I have a confession...I'm frightened by clowns but what's not to love about this little cutie. Sweet paper bow, just looks perfect for this card and fabulous felt with the button on top. Awesome card.
