Perfect Sentiment Challenge #32 A Banner Birthday

My third challenge as a Perfect Sentiment Challenge guest designer is today.

Have a Banner Birthday...... Oh, my!!! How super fun is this challenge?!

The Challenge: create a card with a birthday sentiment
The Twist: use a banner on your creation

I don't have banners handy, so I had to grab SCAL and my Cricut to get started.

I made a banner and a shadow with the basic shapes in SCAL. Unfortunately, I had to cut the hot air balloons out by hand (boo hoo.... hahaha!), but they were pretty simple cuts. I love the CAS style, and I think this card qualifies for that pretty well.

Card Recipe :

stamps - Air Flair, Rooster Sunrise (sentiment)
paper - parchment, blue, white
ink - blue, green, orange, black, brown
accessories - Cricut, SCAL, pearls, ribbon, pop dots

I hope you'll join us with this challenge - we all need birthday cards, right?? :) Head over to Perfect Sentiments Challenge and post your link. I can't wait to see what you have to show us!

Have a wonderful Wednesday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!
