Sweet Birthday Wishes


Time for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Here's the sketch:
I recently got this great set of Compact Sentiment stamps and thought I'd make a birthday card to utilize this nice little greeting. The flowers are from the Eat Cake set. I layered the sentiment onto stripes stamped with the borders from the Off Beat Backgrounds set.

I made my festive banner pennants from triangles I cut free-hand and coated in Glitter Ritz micro-fine glitters, burnishing well into the double-sided tape. They sparkle so well in real life! A few layers, some raspberry twine and here we have it:
