mm2 - b'day thanks

Here's one of a set of birthday thank you cards for our 5 year old She requested these colors for her party invitations (posted here), and wanted similar balloons on her cake.  The vellum sentiment strip (with defining score lines) is the look for PTI's 2nd Make it Monday challenge (link here). 
My heat gun ever-so-slightly warped the vellum (something old & cheap-o from an office supply store).  Still, I love vellum's soft look and will definitely use this technique again!
I love matching the flower from Everyday Classics with the flowers in the Raspberry Fizz Mix.  I chose three background papers, and punched a circle from the small stamped flower.  The epoxy dome and foam dimensional make it an adorable balloon.
For the party, all we had to do was arrive at the venue with a cake and party favors:

Inside is a cookie from our neighborhood bakery, Hans & Harry's, stapled in a small PTI glasseine bag.

Each kiddo's name stamped on the treat was a fun party hit.

Goofy grin alert!  Here's the Birthday Girl with her basket of favors, excited and waiting for the party to begin!

Love the TY card, and those favors are so cute!! I have a bd party coming up Friday (my daughter), and I'm still trying to figure out something for favors, maybe I'll copy your idea ;)

Jen Carter said...

These are so cute!! You did a great job with them and I'm sure they were all hits!

Kara said...

such cute favors!! great color combination too! I always loved finding things with my name on them because they were hard to come by! Kara wasn't a popular name in the 70's, especially not with a k!

Lee Anne said...

You worked so hard on all of this! I love the vellum strip on your thank you note! The brown is perfect with the pink!
