Flea Market Flip - #6

I've committed to doing a quarterly series (personal challenge) this year. For this quarter (April - June) the series is what I'm calling Flea Market Flip. The idea is to find an item at a yard sale, thrift store, even out of the trash and use it on a card.... but the item needs to be something that was not created for the purpose of cardmaking or paper-crafting.

Today's item is a
bag of Birthday Balloons:

Cost: $1.00
Found at a local thrift store

I had a different idea at first, but it didn't work out as I'd planned, so instead I used some sharp scissors to handcut a balloon shape from one of the balloons and glued it onto the image instead of colored the balloon in the stamped image.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
This is my last Flea Market Flip post, as this quarter is over. I'll begin a different quarterly series in July so stay tuned.
