Birthday Bucket

Happy Saturday!
Hope everyone is having a great day. Well I got back into my baskets. I wanted to share one I did for my hubby's cousin Stacey for her birthday. We heading off to a BBQ for the big birthday in a little bit! YAY!

I got one of those plastic drink tubs for summer parties. I filled it with reusable plastic plates, cups, a small ice bucket, napkins, plastic ware, a pitcher, some place mats and some dish towels. The bucket and everything inside is red. They have a basement themed after the local university here and the colors are red and black, so I figured they could use it all outside or in the bar area of their home.
I used Alphalicious for the balloons. Then I ran each one through the Cuttlebug using Divine Swirls, Argyle, Happy Birthday & Paisley embossing folders and tied color coordinated ribbon in a bow around the sticks. The two party hats are cut from the Celebrations cartridge and then embossed with the Traffic Jam folder. The cupcakes and "Happy Birthday" are both cut from Hello Kitty Greetings.

Here is the card I made to go along with it.....

I wanted to use all the same colors so this card came out pretty thick. The monkeys are of course my little buddy Changito from Stampendous.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful weekend!
