Frugal? Me?

Ok, so I'm not known for being frugal, unfortunately for my husband, but I was for today's Ways To Use It Challenge! I also used Amber's awesome VLVFeb04 sketch and the twist was to use acetate. I stamped the vase onto the dp and cut it out, then onto some acetate and put it over the dp. I adhered it with Glossy Accents. So how was I frugal?
1)Scraps of paper
2)My cheap white cs instead of WW
3)Odd button
4)Pieces of thread through the button instead of ribbon or twine
5)I used the acetate that some of my acrylic stamps came on : )

Thank you so much for stopping by!
