Birthday Banners

Today I'm playing in the art studio, and not doing much of anything else.  I'm so lucky to have a choice!  Was a busy day yesterday, and so today I just want to take it easy.  I received my latest SU! order yesterday and am having fun playing with some of my new things.  I'm still going through my birthday order from Simon Says as well ... lots of fun toys.  Today's card uses my new "For The Birds" set from SU! long with my latest die from My Favorite Things ... mini wavy pennants.  Pennants are so popular on cards right now, and I couldn't resist giving it a try.

This card is for today's CAS-ual Fridays Challenge (CFC61 - strips of color or patterned paper).  The pennants worked perfectly for the challenge.  Hope you like.

"Birthday Banners"

Stamp:  For the Birds (SU!)
Paper:  Whisper White, Just Add Cake DP (SU!); White heavy cardstock (C.C. Designs)
Ink:  Stazon Black, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Mini Wavy Pennants (MFT), Mandarin Twine (The Twinery), Black Fine-Point Sharpie, glue, glue dots, and sticky strips

I stamped the bird image in Stazon Black and colored with Stampin' Write Markers.

I cut out several small pennants from the Just Add Cake DP, cut them to size, added the lettering with the black sharpie, and glued them to pieces of twine.

I added the banners to the card front, adding a rolled glue dot to the back of each pennant and wrapping the ends of the twine to the back to secure.

I mounted the card front onto a heavy white cardbase for stability.
