 Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge over at As You Like It and we are asking whether you prefer to recycle items for your crafting or use new stuff.

Sometimes I see things that I could re-use on a card but I much prefer to use new stuff and I certainly seem to have plenty of that at the moment!    I think it makes it more exciting if it's new and you wonder how it's going to turn out.

For my card I have used The Greetery Balloon Bouquet stamp set and their twisted crepe dies.  It took a bit of practice to line up the flowers on the largest balloon.  There are four steps to it and even a tiny bit out and it doesn't look right.  Another thing I found with the set is that I couldn't find an ink that would stamp evenly for the large ballon so I ended up using coloured cardstock for that one. The two smaller balloons have been coloured with copics.  

Glitter has been added to the streamers on every other piece and also to the numbers.  Sequins in similar colours to the balloons finish it off.

I would like to enter:
