Birthday Celebration Challenge

I was over on UStamp with Dawn and Friends this weekend, checking it out for the first time. There's a blog hop and birthday celebration going on this weekend, so I gave Saturday's inspiration challenge a go. The inspirational photo is similar to this one:

And here is what I came up with.

I used the new Petite Pennant punch for the pennants and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch for the trim. The birthday hat pom-pom was created with several punch-outs from the Boho Blossom punch, and I love how the party wand do-hickie came out! :)

Stamps: Upsy Daisy; Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Love Impressions DSP, Good Morning Sunshine DSP, In Color DSP, Ice Cream Parlor DSP; Ink: Pacific Point; Accessories: Boho Blossom punch, Petite Pennant punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch, Large Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Brad, White Baker's twine.

ETA: I got a chance to play with Sunday's challenge this morning. The inspiration project was Jenn Picard's wonderful scrapbook layout, including orange and pinwheels. Here's my take on it.

I love the whimsical feel!

Love the little pinwheels, adorable!
Just wanted to update you about a tutorial for the straw/wood grain background. That will be a tutorial I'll be having up with a kit I'm offering in the fall. If things go as planned I'll have a video showing how to do that technique. Thanks for your interest.
