My Creative Time Thrifty Thursday

Hi crafty friends & happy Thursday!
Today over at the My Creative Time blog, it is
Thrifty Thursday!
This is the day where we show you projects made with scraps, leftovers or recycled items.

I have a container where I keep all of my scrap die cuts in. As I was going through it, I came across these balloons and thought they would be perfect for a quick and easy birthday card. You can never have too many of those right?

Everything I used (other than the sequins) was scraps, including my card base! I love when that happens!! I used one of the greetings from the Tag Die Layers and die cut that out of my white layer. I then cut it out again, using a piece of scrap pink cardstock, so that I could inlay the pink letters into the white. My balloon scraps came from the Stitched Party Dies set. I used some white embroidery thread that was left over from another project and just colored it black with a sharpie and then attached them to my balloons. I popped up my balloons with some foam adhesive and then added a few random sequins and voila! A super quick and cute birthday card!

 Make sure you head over to the My Creative Time blog to see more Thrifty Thursday Inspiration from my wonderful design team sisters!

I can't ever seem to have too many Birthday cards! I love how yours came out...coloring the thread probably took the longest next to die cut gluing! Perfect colors of balloons too. Beautiful job.
