My Birthday Banner

Hi everyone,

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge has such a nice challenge for us. It's anything goes! So, no rules, no requirements, just enjoy crafting and join in!



Can't believe that my birthday is tomorrow! Ohh my, the years really fly by! After packing up the Christmas decorations last week, it was really sad. Normally I don't decorate the house for my birthday. But why not? I thought it was a great idea to decorate my house a little bit again. And bring the festivities back for a little while. 



It's been a while since I used my Silhouette Cameo. Perfect time to put it to work. In the cutting software I played around a bit and soon I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted a fun birthday banner.



After I cut the letters out of red or black cardstock, it was time to start embellishing them. My beloved washi tapes needed to make their appearance. I think it's such a nice effect to use Perfect Pearls on a black surface.  And for some more texture I colored modeling paste with Charcoal Black or Modern Red paint.
