Fitztown - Banners or Pennants

This week's challenge at Fitztown challenge blog is 'Banners or Pennants' so we'd like to see your cards with one or both of these on. I used both!

My image is Sports Car 1 available here. Check out the Fitztown store for lots of images in lots of sections with new images being added all the time.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and used my Sakura silver metallic pen on the exhaust, etc. After cutting the image into a rectangle I matted it on to dark green card from Papermill. I used Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder of pennants on a sheet of white paper which I then matted on to more dark green card. The card blank is by Joanna Sheen. I wanted to keep this card quite simple so I made a dark green banner and wrote Happy Birthday in a Sakura white pen. The only addition then was the set of three green buttons, tied with Creative Expressions baker's twine, which I set at the bottom right corner.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
