Stitched Banner Birthday

I purchased the Stitched Triangles dies a few months ago and wait for it...never used them!   I hate it when  I do that.  I know I had lots of ideas on ways to use the dies which is why I purchased them but it wasn't until I had to make something for the Festive Friday Challenge #FF0085 that I pulled them out. 

Are you familiar with the Festive Friday Challenge? Every challenge has a festivity it is celebrating  and an Inspo list inspired by the festivity. The Inspo List is a 10 item list you can choose from to create your project.  Incorporate THREE of the items from the Inspo list in your project and post to the gallery. And guess what? Your project doesn’t have to be about National Flag Week, which is the theme for this challenge.


I chose from the Inspo list stars, bright colors, and banner/flag die.


I used the banner die from the Stitched Triangles die set and cut it in rainbow colors.  I used  Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, and Gorgeous Grape.  The little stars were cut out of the Rainbow Glimmer Paper.  The Real Red stitched scalloped borders were cut using the Penned Flowers dies. 


The sentiment is from the Sweet as a Peach set and stamped in Real Red ink.  Inside I added a few more stars cut from the Rainbow Glimmer paper.  Be sure to check out what the rest of the Festive Friday design team created.

What a fun, bright and happy card. Love the colors you've used. The stars on the ends of the banners are the perfect touch!


Great card!

So bright and cheery, Sharon! I would have a birthday every week, if it meant I would receive a day brightener like this card!
