Having a birthday blast with Banner Blast

I've had another play with Banner Blast and as I enjoyed the layout I used last time here I went with that.  Isn't it great that by just changing colours and a background you can get a completely different feel?

For this card I used a Sahara Sand card base with a mat of Real Red.  I then stamped Hardwood in Sahara Sand onto Very Vanilla to give a drift wood look.  My banner is made up of a variety of colours and stamps from Banner Blast and were punched out with the co-ordinating punch.  They are popped up on Dimensionals.  I stamped my sentiment from Sassy Salutations in Real Red. 

When you get a layout you like it's ok to stick with it, just change it up a little. 

We were at my son's careers fair tonight.  It was very good with lots of stands.  He's not sure what he wants to be and has gone through a few career choices so far.  So we picked up leaflets from a few stands and he's happy the subjects he has chosen seem to fit in with whichever direction he finally decides on.  

I kept looking for the stand that says card making is the future!  It wasn't there!!! Lol!! 

Have fun whatever you are doing and thanks for your visit.  xx

This is great, love the wood effect background.

As for the stand not being there, well all I can say it wasn't a very good turnout, of course card making is the future LOL

What a great country card, Aileen! It's a fantastic lesson on how much diversity we have in our craft rooms w/o changing the layout design of our cards! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell
