AAA Birthday - #8 Balloons & Banners

The last challenge of 2019 is starting today at AAA Birthday.  And hey I know you're all into Christmas mode at the moment but birthdays still happen in December so take a break and rustle up a birthday card or two and get linked up at AAA Birthday.

Now I know a bit about December birthdays as one of my sons and now one of my grandsons have them. It can be fun having a December birthday but there are downsides too - it's easy to feel a bit invisible amongst all the Christmas mayhem.

Anyway here's my card to show December birthdays are just as important as Christmas:

I used a Polkadoodles digi stamp as my starting point. I masked it off and added some stencilled banners using Funky Fossil's Banners & Bunting. I then coloured the image using Copic pens  to match the banner blues and greens.

I die cut three layers of a stitched frame and then added a stamped and hand cut extra banner across the one of the top corners. I finished it all off with the Happy Birthday sentiment.

Stamps: Polkadoodles, Party Dude; Catherine Pooler, Birthday Icons
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress oxide, mermaid lagoon, twisted citron, cracked pistachio
Die: Lawn Fawn, stitched rectangle frame
Pens: Copic, W1, W3, C01, C1, C3, C5, E21, E50, E51, E55, E70, R2O, B93, B95, B97, YG01, YG03, YG23, BG15, BG22, BG34
