Use It! #14/Card Patterns #19

Hi everyone! Here's a fun, playful card I made for my friend Charles' upcoming birthday. The sketch is courtesy of Card Patterns, and the "ingredients" are from Joanne's Use It challenge:

1. Use pink!
check! Striped paper is Me & My Big Ideas and the tag is Colorbok.
I found the party "button" in my stash (is this even a button? It came in a variety bag of buttons, I think, but in no way would I classify this as a button.)

2. Add scallops
check! My Fiskars border punch came through for me once again ;)

3. Add a tag
I love these tags- I found pads of them in the dollar bin at Michael's after my boss got me a bunch (I couldn't believe someone bought me something from Michael's that I hadn't seen before! I scoured the store in sections that I don't normally peruse, and that's when I stumbled upon the $5 and under aisle. Then of coures I couldn't help getting more! <-- I'm naughty! lol)

4. Enjoy the creative process
as much as the finished card!
that's a check! with no explanation needed ;)

I also used some green paper by Creative Imaginations, ribbon from Target, and gems I found at the dollar store (they came packaged as "cell phone bling"). I'm assuming the image is Stampendous, but I'm not sure since it came from a swap, as did the black brad. The black cardstock came pre-embossed, also from a swap. I REALLY love using up my stash, it feels so yummy! Hooray! :D I hope you enjoy my vibrant card, thanks for stopping by!

PS- I just finished making my July 4th cards, but there's still time for me to make more if you want one! :D
