The cards are easy enough.  I'll let you figure those out.

The Banner

The banner was quick to make by using the Perfect Pennants and Tasteful Trim Dies.

I cut the white layer and the Twitterpatted dsp with with the largest triangle.  I trimmed down the dsp layer a bit along one long edge.  The middle triangle was just too small.

The scallop trim I used the scallop section of the Tasteful Trim die.
I cut my Not Quite Navy cardstock 1 1/4" wide and was able to cut 5 layers at a time.

I used the Crimper to crimp the scallop trim so it would ruffle easier.  
I pinched it together to gather it as I pressed it onto the Sticky Strip tape
on the back side.

I used the SU Glue stick to apply the dsp on the white triangles.

I then attached some scallop trim pieces on the top edge
on the front side, in the same way as I attached them on the back.

To hang the banner I punched holes through each end with the Crop A Dile,
then threaded them on a 5 foot piece of grosgrain ribbon.

I stamped the birthday words and small images on white.  Punched them out with the 11/4" circle punch, and layered them on a 1 3/8" Not Quite Navy circle punch. 
I layered this on a white scallop punch shape.  I was going to use the doily shapes from the Pennant die but they were too large for the look I wanted. I snipped off the tip of one of the dsp layers and it looked wonky so I added the large pearls from the Occasion Mini to hide the end.  You'd never have know unless I told!

The Bracelet

This was quick and easy, as I already had the bracelet.  I used Stazon cleaner
to get the previous image off the disks completely and washed and dries the shell circles.  I then stamped the small images from the set on each side of the same circle. 
Some ended up a little off center.  I left them, it added charm.  :)

I am going to clear coat them with Crystal Effects OR clear nail polish to protect the images.  Maybe the nail polish, I could get that off if I want to change the images again.

Thanks for stopping by. 
Be sure to check the previous post I picked 4 visitors to receive a set of cards.
Happy stamping!
