A Banner Birthday - PSC32

Hello again my friends.  Welcome to Wednesday and another challenge from Perfect Sentiment.  We've got a good one for you this week.  All you have to do is make a birthday card (sentiment on the front, please).  The twist is to use a banner on your card.

The winner this week will win a $10 gift voucher from Stitchy Bear Stamps.  If you haven't checked out their digis yet, you really need to head over there. 
Without further ado - here is my creation for this week.

My image is from Stitchy Bear Designs.  It is called Best Friends #2.  I thought it was a really sweet image.

Materials Used:
Cardstock - Xpress it Blending Card; Stampin Up - Close to Cocoa, Groovy Guava, and Soft Sky.
Design Paper - First Edition - Summer Breeze.  I distressed the edges of the middle layer a little bit.
Sentiment - Stampin Up - Birthday Banter - stamped with Close to Cocoa ink and punched out using Stampin up Oval punch and the Close to Cocoa mat punched with the SU Scallop Oval punch
Edge Punch - Martha Stewart Stamp Around the Paper
Banner - Papertrey Ink - Banner Builder Dies with a scrap of twine.
The image was colored using my Copic markers:  B0000; BG0000, BG01, BG10; E01, E21, E23, E25, E27; E31, E33, E35, E37; E50, E51, E53; E11, E93, E95; G00, G12; Y11, Y13, Y18, Y38; YR00, YR01, and YR02.

That's it for this time.  Now I hope you will take the time to visit all the other wonderful Design Team blogs and get some inspiration from them.
Maggie - You are here.

Once you've checked out the Design team, get cracking and put a card together yourself and then go over to the Perfect Sentiment blog and link it up.  You could be the lucky winner this week, or you might get picked as one of the Perfect 3.  Have fun!
