Birthday Banner Fun

I have this week off of my "day job" so I am spending at least a couple of days stamping!

Birthday cards are always in short supply, so I combined The Paper Players sketch challenge with the Hand Stamped Sentiments Banner Bash Challenge.  Lately, my favorite thing to use is Designer Series Paper to add a little pizzazz to my cards. 

The Paper Players Sketch Challenge (PP60) is to use this sketch:

And Hand Stamped Sentiments has "Banner Bash" which is to use any kind of Banner on the card (HSSBB).  This is what I came up with... 

Don't forget to check out the other cards for these challenges,


As always, only Stampin' UP! products were used:

 Pennant Parade, Extreme Elements, Tiny Tags, & Happiest Birthday Wishes
Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise & Real Red
Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise & Real Red

Embellishments and Accessories:Big Top Designer Series Paper

I am also working on some Simply Adorned Pennants.  Here are a few I came up with.

Happy Stamping!
