Cheap and sparkly

Last time I was in Target, I found some valentine themed paper in the dollar bins, along with some embellishments, and as I was driving home with these little goodies, I said to myself "I need to make at least three cards with this stuff to justify the three bucks I spent". Then I thought that for an additional challenge, I should make something other than a valentine.

The background paper and the cardboard sticker that says "happy" are from that purchase. The stamp and the huge purple rhinestones are from Dollar tree, as are the holographic stickers I used to spell "Birthday". I used glitter pens and the blended glitter technique to color the image, and to do some faux stitching around the edge. It isn't gorgeous, but you can't complain about the cost of the materials!

Now, who needs a cheap and sparkly birthday card?
