Stitched Banner Birthday Cards

I've been having fun playing with my PTI Banner Builder dies. Seriously love those things! I used the boxy banner shape to cut a bunch of pennants from various pattern papers in my stash. Then I mixed and matched to make some birthday note cards.

I machine stitched the little flags in place so that it looked as though they were strung across the top of the card. I intentionally left the thread tails long to mimic a banner string.

The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from Wreath for All Seasons, except for this card. This one uses the same font, but it is the larger version from Think Big Favorites #12.

I couldn't stop making them, they were so cute!

I can't decide which one I like best. Which one is your favorite? 

Stamps: Wreath for All Seasons, Thing Big Favorites #12 (PTI)
Paper: Stamper's Select White (PTI), various pattern papers
Ink: Onyx Black (Versa Fine)
Tools: Banner Builder dies (PTI), sewing machine

Love the banners and great sewing! Hard to pick a favorite. I think I would go with either the first one or the last monochrome yellow one but they are all pretty!
