Mojo Monday Sketch #501

I haven't been blogging because my camera is dead.  This picture is off of my phone; please forgive my poor photography.

In my craft room I have a rectangular plastic "basket" that has accumulated unfinished cards, single embellishments, or 12x12 scraps that are the last of a collection.  This basket goes ignored for literally months (and sometimes a few years!)  Last week I saw Julee's most recent sketch:
I decided this was the perfect opportunity to peruse the bits in the basket.  I found the "HB" chipboard letters I had created from American Crafts paper.  In that same basket I found scraps of that same American Crafts collection.  My card came together fairly quickly, but my husband commented,"what is 'HB'?"  I changed out my circles for balloons, hoping 'happy birthday' seemed more obvious for my "HB".

Thank you, Julee, for the inspiration!  It was really rewarding to finally make use of those two chipboard letters :)

Happy Monday!

So CUTE! Nice way to use up those extras you have! I like that you changed the circles up to be balloons! Really cute!
