Today, I did an April Fools Day Card.  I thought for a long while trying to decide what I would do for this card.  I finally (with the help of a friend) decided to do a jester.  One day when I was looking for some vintage items for another project I was working on, I found this vintage jester and thought she would be perfect for a  card for April Fools Day.

If you have followed my blog for a while, you know I am a simplistic person.  Though, I am trying to change that.  it is just a super slow process.  This card is super simplistic, thou I had more planned I just could not make it work with the supplies I had in stock.


This card was also supposed to have flowers around the oval image.  The flowers I had in mind to use were perfect, just a little to big for the card.  Oh well, back to the drawing board right? 

The inside of the card simply reads... "April Fools".
