A birthday card from scraps

Hello blogland!  I've been catching up on my scrapping and was on a roll this weekend!  I got three layouts finished yesterday in no time using the "Happy Day" collection from Simple Stories - love it!  Today I wanted to clean off my desk and decided to make a birthday card for my next box to Operation Write Home from the scraps sitting there and here's what I came up with:


I distressed the edges to make it a little more vintage looking and popped up the sentiment and banner with some pop dots to give it just a little bit of dimension.  One-two-three and it was done and is already in the box ready to go to one of our heroes.  Don't forget to stop by OWH and check out today's sketch challenge HERE.

I just love when you can use scraps and make a nice looking card. I think I have that same paper you used for the sentiment.

What a fun, playful card! The pennant flags are perfect with the sentiment and I rally like the ribbon treatment. I need to remember to try that... I love finding new ways to add ribbon without bulk.
