Birthday Banners

     When I saw the video for this week's MIM: Flagged borders, I knew I would have to make time to join in.   I decided to use the palette from this week's colourQ challenge



  I wanted my card to be different from the one Dawn did in the video. I had an idea to hang small banners from the Wonderful Words: birthday.  The rest of the card just evolved from there.


I stamped the presents from BB:Birthday Fun in Aqua Mist and Hawaiian Shores. Then I  fussy cut the Hawaiian Shore ones and adhered them with foam dots to add some dimension.

I used Glitter Ritz: Kiwi on the Wonderful Word: Birthday. 

I am really pleased how this turned out. Thank you for stopping by to take a peek.

This is so fun, and I love so many of the elements--color scheme, those flags hanging down from your die cut word, and your 3D present border.
