Banner Birthday

The latest challenge at DRS Designs is "It's a new day" which is a challenge involving the word "day" - entries need to have that word on them.

I am really into banners the last few weeks.  I made some for our junque booth and we are making some for a baby shower for my niece this weekend.  I thought one would be really cute on a birthday card.

I used the following DRS Designs stamps on this card:

Small 1 line Happy Birthday
Splatter BG
Script Font Background
Flower border

I made my banner base out of a strip of raffia - it was a bit harder to tie but I liked the more rustic look.  I used white kraft paint as accents around the border of the card front and as splatters.  I love how white looks on kraft.

Hope you will join us this week.



  1. Nancy - I like everything about this beautiful card! The splatters in the background and the lovely doily are a very nice touch along with that beautiful banner! You are right - that white on Kraft is fabulous!

  2. Your banners look so pretty and I love the random splatters in your background too! HUGS :)

  3. Kraft paper, white paint and splatters make a SUPER background for this banner of flowers and your doily sentiment - What a happy Birthday card! BIG HUGZ TO YOU!
