Birthday Banner

Hi again, hope you've had enjoyable weekend. Mine is nearly over yet again.
 Time to look forward to the next one!

I used one of my watercolour backgrounds to create this panel. I used Kuretake Gansai Tambo paints but didn't add the Finetec gold this time. 

I'm linking up to these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday  where the theme is to use a Simon Says Stamp product.
My banner is a Simon Says Stamp die using snippets of teal and yellow card.

Simon Monday Challenge Blog

At Just Us Girls it's a colour theme.
I used dark blue, coral, yellow and teal.

At Addicted to Stamps & More it's a clean and simple theme.


snippets means I can also visit the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
