FM64: Birthday Celebration with Pennant Parade

I recently learned that Card Patterns was going to discontinue their weekly challenge. Boo! So, I began looking for a new challenge blog. Hooray! I stumbled upon the Friday Mashup. How did I not know about this challenge blog. It is awesome! They mashup two challenges. How fun. This week the challenge was to create a box in a bag with a party time theme.

I thought Pennant Parade was the perfect stamp set to use for this challenge. It is very party time-y, don't you think? This card was totally inspired by a card I saw on Splitcoast. You can find it here. I also really really really tried to create a box in a bag. But, I wasn't feeling well this week and I started to get frustrated because it just wasn't turning out the way I wanted it to. So, I cheated a little bit and used the Fancy Favor Bigz XL die from Stampin' Up!

And, now for the details...
