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?
