MCT Thrifty Thursday

Hello! Today is another Thrifty Thursday over at MyCreativeTime. For my card today I've used more scraps from my Hello Luscious pad by Basic Grey. I cut out the cute girl in the tub using the Playtime cricut cartridge. The card base is from the Songbird cricut cartridge. The girl's face is from the adorable Princess Face Assortment from PeachyKeenStamps. I white heat embossed the sentiment from the So Grateful For You set from MyCreativeTime
For the "metal" parts of the tub, I used brushed pewter distress stain. Then I wanted to add shine, so I coated them with glossy accents. Then, a happy accident happened! :) When the glossy accents had dried, the brushed pewter appeared cracked underneath, COOL! :) And for the bubbles, I used rock candy stickles. 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more thrifty creations! :)

p.s. This card is a Thank You card for my Mom in Law. She got me my favorite Origin's Ginger bath goodies for my birthday. She spoils me! :)
