Use It Tuesday #49---Fasteners

Hi everyone!
Are you guys excited for another great challenge theme starting today at 

This week is about using up some of your stash of Fasteners: buttons, brads, & eyelets.

When I first started scrapbooking 6 years ago, I was in awe of all the cute little brads that I would find. 
Somewhere along the way, I stopped using all the cute, shaped ones and just stuck to regular round brads. 
For this challenge, I decided to go through my stash of brads and find some that may be feeling a bit neglected from non-use.

Here is the card that I created for this challenge:

See those balloons? 
Those are brads that have been in my stash for 6 years!!!

Let me tell you a little bit about the rest of my card.
For my teddy bear, I used the Teddy Bear Parade cricut cartridge and cut her out at 3".
I decided to use a peachy keen stamp for her smile, I can't remember the last time I used those stamps.
I used some stickles for her hat, cupcake icing and the flame on the candle. 
The sentiment I used came from a stamp set from CardzTV stamps. I bought that stamp set back in November I think and just opened it for this card. 
Before attaching my brads to the yellow cardstock, I added a glue dot behind each balloon and attached a piece of hemp cord for the balloon string. Then all I had to do was attached all my layers to my card base, attach my teddy bear and then add a little bit of glossy accents to her hand to hold the strings in place. 

You can read all about the challenge and see the wonderful projects that my DT sisters created at the 
Challenge ends Feb. 22, 2013.
