Happy Birthday Cards

Alex has a birthday party to go to tomorrow, so of course, I had to make a card. ;) Actually, two of them because it's a party for two of his friends.  I knew as soon as I saw this card sketch that I wanted to use it, I just couldn't wait... so I didn't lol.  After making the card, I had these little triangles I had cut from the ends of the pp, and decided that it was the perfect touch for a matching envelope!  I always have a problem with the 'scoop' of a banner, so I cut out a circle with my coluzzle and used that as a guide.  After gluing down the little triangles, I outlined them with a fine tip pen.

I scanned this before remembering to add a bling to the sentiment banner, so just imagine a single bling right before the "Happy Birthday". :)

cuuute! loving especially the envelope with the banner- good idea to use a circle as a guide for keeping the scoop uniform. I'll keep that one in mind!
