Birthday Parade!

Hi stampers!  I'm back with another sneak peek and I think my favorite yet!  I was inspired by a project in the catalog to make this card with the banner.  I love the color combo of the three in colors with daffodil delight!  I also love how the pennants are stamped on the same colored card stock and then popped up in the middle.  And know what?  I didn't have to cut those suckers out either!  The new pennant punch punches out the scalloped design and also the plain little inner triangle!  I'll try to post a video of it in July for some helpful hints.  Every card I make from now on might have a pennant on it, lol!  Isn't it cute?

Stampin' Supplies: 
Stamps:  Pennant parade, create a cupcake
Paper:  Whisper white, dafodil delight, pool party, wisteria wonder, lucky limeade
Ink:  basic black, pool party, wisteria wonder, lucky limeade
Accessories:  polka dot emobssing folder, punch pack, boho blossoms punch, pennant punch, rhinestones, subtles brads, crochet thread

I have to say, I'm rationing my in colors since I forgot to order a full pack of each.  That's what ordering at 2 am will do I guess:-)  That's the real reason my card base isn't one of the new colors BUT I think that it worked out well and was the best choice in the end since it pulls it together with the little yellow flower accents.  The little flowers are also layered on white CS that I stamped with the small A to Z background stamp and then punched out with the boho blossom punch.  The little rhinestone really adds something too! The sentiment is from create a cupcake and I did cut it by hand!  I also love how the dots on the white background go with the polka dots on the pennants! Anyway, I think that's about it!  Hope you are enjoying the sneak peeks!  Happy stamping!
