"Sing" Happy Birthday card

First of all I had so much fun today crafting in my room which I reorganized (see yesterday's post).  
Everything I need on a regular basis is close at hand now and with everything organized again it was easy to grab things and to put them away.  My first project was a card for several challenges.  
My Craft Spot- Sew much fun.  Use stitching!  I am so excited I finally had room for my little Pixie sewing machine I bought to sew paper months ago so for the first time I sewed on a card.  I love this look.  
The Paper Variety- Make a Birthday banner.  I love to make banners on cards and layouts.  I chose to use 4 different shapes from Birthday Bash and cut the shapes out at 2 inches.  I then used the same cart to cut the letters out to spell SING at 1 inch.  I used Baker's Twine to thread and added gems and a Happy Birthday stamp.  On the inside I cut out One Year Older from Phrases cart.  Each phrase is 4 layers. 
Also I used the sketch for Celebrate the Occasion.

  Instead of ribbon I used the banner to divide the card in the middle.
