The card I am sharing with you today features the new set Pennant Parade and its matching punch. With pennants being all the rage, this is one cool punch and stamp set. The set is super versatile and can be used for more than pennants, though (Christmas Trees, for example).
I was planning on using the sketch as is and write "Bonne" with the pennants and "fête" at the bottom in a Hodgepodge Hardware frame, but after punching the pennants out, I realized I could not fit five pennants across, so I decided to flip the sketch around to accomodate my design idea. I looked through my sentiment folder (where I have stamped all of the sentiments from the stamp sets I own) to find the word "bonne" and it turns out I had it in the Sincere Salutations set ("Bonne chance"). The rest of the sentiment was stamped with the Sweet Shoppe Alphabet Lower, a perfect match in size and style to the Pennant set.
The background Designer paper came from the Just Eat Cake paper pack. I liked the number border to match the birthday theme, so I made sure to keep it when I cut the paper out. The ruffled ribbon is an old ribbon that was sold in our Ribbons Originals pack a few years ago. I added some stamped tassles at the bottom of the pennants and added small pearls in the center of the tassles and on each side of the pennants to finish the look. Finally, I used one of our 3/8 brad in the center of a Hodgepodge Hardware piece (the flower ribbon slide) at the bottom of the card and added a butterfly at the bottom of the Hodgepodge frame, complete with two pearls. The card's base was stamped with the now-retired Teahouse background.
