Banner Birthday Card

Becky here today and it is HOT! We have a thermometer on our front porch, which is in the shade, and it say 91. It's really humid though so it feels like it's about 100-105! Today's card is of the birthday variety. I used a ruler to create four triangles on some scrap Crate Paper I had and then adhered them to some Making Memories black floss. Then I embellished the banner with some bits of ribbon, Rustic Wood Buttons from PTI and even a tiny paper photo turn. I adhered the whole banner to my Kraft card stock, stamped my Mixed Messages from PTI sentiment and then attached it to my white card base. This card is bigger than I normally make, 5 3/4 by 6 3/4.
Here's a side view of the card:

and the inside view:

I simply adhered a strip of Crate Paper with some more Rustic Wood Buttons and PTI twine and then stamped my sentiment, from PTI's Life set. Enjoy you're evening!

This is adorable! I've not mastered the button thing yet....I buy them, and then they sit there cause I never think they look right on my cards. I am determined to make them work though...
