Happy 13th Birthday


Today is some more new releases over at The {Stamps} of Life.  This release there are a few sets I like, but I knew that the numbers2stamp and the crayonletters2stamp would be wonderful to work with in my Project Life albums (which I'm behind on).

My soon to be teenage son was invited to a co-ed birthday party this past weekend and so I thought this set would work perfectly to make the girl a 13th birthday card.  

For my banner, I stamped my cardstock with the dictionary4me before cutting out my pennants.  I decided to create my own background for the large strip so I stamped my cardstock with the animals4print set.


I used the current Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #166 for this card, I think it worked perfectly for a teenage girl.  This is also for the current challenge over at There She Goes for their 4th anniversary to use banners.
