MFTWSC252 - Happy Birthday, Tracey!


Today is not Tracey's birthday. Her birthday is actually tomorrow, but since I have a CASology post scheduled for tomorrow and since I gave this card to Tracey on Friday when we had lunch together, I'm posting it today.

I used the latest MFT Wednesday Sketch for inspiration:



I shortened the card and moved the elements up. I used this really neat mylar 'paper' from Elizabeth Crafts. It has iridescent pink and red shimmer and the texture is the same as acetate, but it's opaque, so there's no problem adhering it to the card with foam tape.

I used:
Label Maker Sentiments for the sentiment
Birthday Wishes and Balloons for the string
Balloon Stax for the balloon
Pierced Square Stax for the panel.
