Banner Birthday

Hi friends!  It's Friday again and time for another Viva la Verve sketch.  It's the final sketch in our May VLV series, so if you haven't already, you have until next Thursday (6/5) to play along for your chance to be entered in our $100 gift voucher prize drawing.

When I looked at the sketch I totally thought of the new banner stamp in Wonderful Marvelous.  I originally was just going to stamp them on rectangles, but once I got them stamped it covered up too much of the fabby polka dot paper, so I decided to do a little fussy cutting.  The paper is a new-to-me pad from Crate Paper that I picked up for $2.99 at Tuesday Morning earlier this week.  I replaced the circles in the sketch with hearts cut with the Heart Quartet Die, then added a little sentiment flag stamped with the happy and birthday sentiments from  Wonderful Marvelous.  I finished off with some shiny silver pearls and a seam binding bow using ribbon from the Truly Madly Deeply Collection.
