Put out the flags it's your Birthday!



A simple bright card today using Party This Way.  I'm back looking at those pesky boy cards and I think I could get away with this one because of the colours.

I stamped my flags in Pacific Point onto Whisper White and paper pieced some retired Designer Paper into the middles.  Then matted onto Pacific Point and the card base is Real Red.  The sentiment is also from Party This Way.  The string is hand drawn using my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker

Maybe it's not quite teen but I think it would suit a slightly younger boy, what do you think? 

This weeks challenge is paper piecing over at CAS-ual Fridays so I'm going to enter this card there. 

Fancy building up your stampin' Up! stash?  I have a new Stampers 6 starting in April which is a great way to buy your goodies bit by bit and with a few freebies thrown in too.  If this interest you have a look at the Virtual Hostess page at the top of my blog.  I'd be happy to hear from you! 

Hope you are enjoying your mid term break.  Look forward to coming and visiting you to see all your lovely creations. x

I love these bright colors and the polka dot pennants! I have this set and really haven't used it much! Seeing this makes me want to pull it out.
