Happy Birthday Banner Card

Hey all!  Today I made a birthday card for a family friend - I am pleased with the results and will probably mass produce this one in other colors! 

I am entering this card in the Birthday Sundaes weekly challenge:

#18 - Anything Goes Birthday Card sponsored by Circle B Enterprises!

The materials I used for this card:
Card stock in white, teal, and patterned pink.
Glue, Tacky Tape, and pop-up sticker squares.
Pink and white twine.
Ink in pink and "Happy Birthday" stamp from Michael's.
Carts - Lacy Labels (tag), Cricut Classic Font (triangles) and Jasmine (rectangles).

For this card I used a pre-done card base from Michael's, but you can also make the card base.  I cut out 3 rectangles and layered them, then I cut out the label and stamped on the sentiment.  I attached the label and triangles with pop-up stickers. I used the Tack Tape to attach the twine so it would stay in place across the card.

The twine is in 3 separate pieces - each bow is an individual piece that is taped on with Tacky Tape.
